You are Booted Up, Now What?
Let us cover some virtual memory, and show you how to keep that Mac working at its best!
Virtual memory is a way to extend the memory accessible to the computer by assigning a portion of the drive as a swap file. When the memory built-in or designated is not enough to meet the needs of the application or operating system, Mac OS X uses the file to swap out any unneeded data.
These are handy features and necessary to administrate a Mac, but let us go just a little deeper so that you can also understand how and why the occasional Lock Up still occurs.
