Too much memory

Post by kumar » Mon Sep 28, 2020 2:47 pm

Everything search shows as consuming 300 MB of memory. Why is this so high and how can reduce this memory footprint? I guess it may be due to what I selected to index on the index tab in options. What are the optimal settings to have on index tab to get the best out of everything search and still have a small memory footprint?

What is the problem with this small amount of memory ?
In todays Windows systems this is not that much, even Defender uses constantly more that this.

How many files are we talking about, & what Indexing options do you have selected?
