Best Free Memory Optimizer

by James 28 November 2008 2 Comments

RAM day continues on the Freeware Mission. Earlier today I chose the best freeware memory testing programs, now it’s time to pick the best free memory optimizer. There are a lot of such freeware programs available but there is only one that I decided to use.


And that program is SweepRAM. I reviewed it a few months ago and I’m still using it now, because it’s good, it’s very good.

I chose it because of the unique approach that it has: it’s not a resident program, you just run it when you need to. It will not try to allocate memory and then release it, it will go through all running processes and make them use less RAM if possible.

For instance, if all the regular programs that you use are running in the background (antivirus, etc.) and you want to start a game, run SweepRAM first! It will make the running processes take less memory and you’ll have more available for your game! You can find more details in the previous review and test.

You can download SweepRAM from here, it’s free!

    I have used SweepRAM until i found CleanMem from PCWinTech.com

    For me this one is better because make the programs free the memory not needed instead of making write to the swap file.
