comment How to measure total RAM usage of a program under Windows?
The total private working set should give you a lower bound, and the total virtual size should give you an upper bound. It's probably somewhere between those two, maybe close to the total working set.

comment How can Windows dump the complete RAM in the hibernation file so fast?
@user2284570: Nothing about the NT file system "makes sure hiberfil.sys isn't fragmented". I've had fragmented hiberfil.sys's before, it's very easy to come across them.

comment What is C:\$Directory?
I've seen C:\$MFT listed there plenty of times too, though. Are you saying both refer to the same thing? I don't see why they would but ok...

comment What is C:\$Directory?
I still can't make sense of your comment. The only file that has all files and folders defined in it is \$MFT. There is no metafile or other location on the disk named \$Directory. I don't understand what you're talking about.

comment What is C:\$Directory?
Okay I deleted mine too, although my first comment still stands (I still don't understand what you mean by phrases like "the MFT that is the directory for all files and folders".

comment What is C:\$Directory?
I don't get it, you're saying $Directory is the same as $MFT? Also, attribute lists belong to individual file records and are stored inside the individual records; they're not global files stored on the root of the disk...
