When to Do It:

  • When you cannot perform a task because of insufficient free memory. Most often this occurs when you are trying to open an application or a document. Usually, you get an alert message such as "There is not enough memory to open <name of application>."

  • Whenever you get an alert message stating that memory is running low.

  • When software is running unusually slow, often with frequent disk access.

  • Whenever an application suddenly and unexpectedly quits. Insufficient memory is not the only reason for an unexpected quit, but it is a common one.

  • Whenever you get a system freeze, a system crash, or any less serious malfunction while using an application, particularly if you were doing a memory-intensive operation at the time (such as making a change to a large area of a complex graphics file). No error message need appear. The only system acknowledgment of the error may be a system beep.

  • Whenever applications and/or system software have less (or more) memory assigned to them than you expected.
