Can you look in your system.ini I fixed my two things but I need something called chunksize=
These are the Settings I use in my Win98SE machine...
I have 384MB of ram... you may want to set lower....
Hope That Helps :cool:
Vcache is the Windows disk-caching virtual device driver. This is a very important part of Windows, as it provides excellent disk performance. Windows, however, limits vcache from it's total potential. The following tweak will keep Vcache from taking up all your RAM, and being resized all the time.
Here's how to improve it. Type 'sysedit' in your 'start' , 'run' dialog box and navigate to "System.ini". In the ini file, look for [vcache] and add the following:
(nnn represents a number, multiple of 2)
'MinFileCache' and 'MaxFileCache' should be the same ( about 25% of your RAM ) to avoid resizing. 'ChunkSize' should generally be '512', but you can omit that one. You should set MinFileCache and MaxFileCache to about 25% of your total RAM for best performance, i.e 8190 for 32Mb RAM, 16384 for 64Mb, 32768 for 128Mb...
These are sample settings from one of our PCs ( 256Mb RAM, Windows 98 )
Notes: Generally, the more RAM you have, the bigger vcache can be. Remember that the RAM used by vcache can't be used by applications. Also, Windows 98/98SE has better memory management than 95, so you might not notice much improvement using that tweak
