R-Studio x64 uses too much memory

Post by MarcusXP » Sun Feb 28, 2010 6:41 pm

Hi,

I have a 6.8TB partition that I am trying to recover.
After scanning the partition I saved the scan information (it is a file of about 2.5GB size) and then I try to view the files (F5).
When I do this it shows a progress bar with how many entries are found and it hangs after the progress bar reaches about 80-85%.
When I look at the memory usage the program Rstudio64.exe uses about 20,400,000K (about 20GB) of memory.
I am using a Xeon W3520 CPU (2.66Ghz default, overclocked to 3Ghz) - it is the equivalent of Core i7 920, and 12GB of DDR3 1333Mhz.
The page file is set to 24GB minimum and 48GB maximum.

I started the process again and I checked the memory usage of Rstudio64.exe and it increases with insane speed, until it reaches the 20GB, then the program stops responding.
Any ideas on how I can have the program finish its job without hanging?

thank you,
~Marcus

I've passed the problem to our developers.

Okay, please let me know if you need any additional information.
Like the file with the scan information, maybe.
I can upload it to your ftp server.

thank you,

In case it helps, it is a ext4 partition that I am trying to recover.
I formatted it by mistake by running mkfs.ext4 command on the wrong drive :(

So I understand that your QA team reproduced the problem in your lab and your developers are working to fix it?
Any idea on how long it would take to have the fix ready? (even a patch or a beta/pre-release version)

We are working on better memory management in general. I this that would solve your problem, too.

Do you have an ETA for the new version with memory improvement?
