I have many truecrypt containers that contain random files that I am trying to consolidate into another set of containers that are better organized this time.
To do this requires me to copy all the contents of every container that I have into a central location where I can better categorize these files.
While carrying out this operation, I have noticed that as I read contents from a mounted container, my available physical memory falls linearly until available is consumed.
This physical memory is released/made available only when I dismount the container(s).
Hence it appears to me that the truecrypt driver itself is caching file contents of the container(s) in memory with the expectation that once a file is read, it will be again sometime in the future (which is very incorrect in my use case as I don't read the file again once it's been read from the container and copied to another drive).
Because all available physical memory is consumed by truecrypt, I find it very difficult to use my computer until I dismount the volume, and I have 16GB DDR3 RAM on my system!.
I don't want truecrypt to consume all available physical memory - how do I make it consume a fraction (0.5, 0.7, etc) of available physical memory instead?
