Yes, they are correct. Posting an update now with some Fiddler debug info. Not sure what I'm looking at, though.

Added detail, difference in hardware profile for differing Windows installs.

Lol. I may have better luck with a wooden bat.

comment Zeroed memory vs. free memory - increasing free memory
While this doesn't solve my problem, it does confirm that the memory is in fact free, and the limitation is based in hard-coded application-level caching with QuickBooks. I've taken this up with Intuit more times than I can count. Time to try again :) Thanks for the tip!

Not pertinent to the question, but it's fully custom. PCIe solid-state drives, the whole nine yards. Unfortunately it still doesn't help get around the application-level hard-coded caching limitations in certain cases, this one a prime example.

Appears as though QuickBooks "Enterprise" edition is a far cry from a true definition of enterprise-level software. Since the move from 12 to 13, and now 14, still no fix, the backwards use of memory is just appalling.

64. 59 is free. Looks like no answer.

comment RAMDisk faster than SSD?
This is beginning to make more sense. The DB reference being a perfect example. What I'm getting then, is that if I want my apps to load faster, I'll want to bite the bullet and get a PCIe SSD over a SATA SSD, then to push the envelope even further, I would place all of my regularly-accessed data files (with regular backups, due to the volatility of RAM in general) on the RAMDisk for maximum impact? Would it be a safer bet to just scrap the RAMDisk altogether and setup a RAID0 for the data files and run the OS & apps off a PCIe SSD?

comment RAMDisk faster than SSD?
@MichaelKjörling I must admit, I have always been confused by statements like "improves boot speed" and "improves application load times". To be honest, I could really care less about how quickly an application LOADS, or how quickly the computer BOOTS as this represents about 0.001% of the overall time spent working with the OS and applications themselves. So, to be clear, Windows essentially handles the caching for me once the apps have been loaded? And, I should NOT be running applications from the RAMDisk, but WOULD see a benefit from putting data files on it?

@DanielB RAMDisk is setup using ROG RAMDisk, packaged with the motherboard utilities. As for the RAID0, I was under the impression that a RAID configuration was supposed to improve performance, albeit, with increased wear & tear? Am I wrong?
