I allocate two 300k buffers and Windoze says my app is using 480k of memory !? WTF !? I have plenty of RAM free, is it putting part of my allocations in the page file? When I pull the files in with Memory Mapped Files, I'm not sure what's happening. It all seems to work cool, but I'm very suspicious about what's happening. I wish it would just use up all my damn free memory on the app I'm running !!???!!!!

Anyone know anything about Memory mapping? Is there a reason I should memory map instead of just reading the whole file into big buffers?

Also, does anyone have a powerful machine that I can run a heavy process on for a long time? I estimate it will take about 200 hours of CPU time, 2 Gigs of RAM is necessary.
