I have a PPro 200 with 64mb ram. My Norton's System Doctor indicates that I am using 60+ mb ram at any one time and 99% of my swap file.  My swap file is configured by Windows.  Will more Ram free up my resources?  Is it true that you can have TOO much Ram?

Peterv...

I guess with 64Mg of ram you've plenty to be happy, same goes for windows.  If you install more RAM, you will be wasting your money, because the only applications that will take advantage of this increase are IMAGES EDITING applications.

We use 128Mg Ram and 256Mg on another station that are dedicated only for GRAPHICS.

So don't really get alarmed with it, I would like you also to check on performance by doing the following:

1) Right click on My computer on your desktop
2) Select properties from the menu
3) Select performance tab
4) Select File system
5) Now make sure the settings are set for NETWORK SERVER

I hope this helped
Regards
