once again I am here for your help because I've noticed something pretty strange.
Well last week I finally decided to get rid of my old (and dieing, bad sectors) hdd and install windows 7 on a brand new SSD. Everything is fine, installed applications and updates etc.
But I've noticed something wierd, when I had Windows 7 running on the hdd, (same components) memory usage when idle would never exceed 500 mb. Now with Windows 7 on the ssd, memory usage is always above 1-1.5gb while idle, as soon as I boot into desktop memory stays fixed at 1gb with harderly any applications open.
These are the tweaks to windows that I did, are any related to memory performance issues?
- Turned off hibernation, indexing on ssd & defragmention.
- Moved User Document folders to hdd.
I have noticed one process "audiobg.exe" that uses 15mb ram and I can't get rid of it, tried searching online and its not "enhance audio" because I don't have the option.
And while I'm here, to minimize SSD's read/writes, I tried to move AppData folder following some steps from a guide, changing Environment Variables of TEMP and System Temp to another drive, but it doesn't seem to work for all applications, is there anything else I must do?
Edit: Just realised I should post some pc specs and tests, one moment.
