Now we have two possibilites.
Its size is 32K. Documents claim, that highscan does the same thing we did right know, but I never saw it working. Programs are doss to this memory range.
But you should not expect any speed increase wonders. If dos recognizes that the program would not fit into the umb area it is loaded to conventional memory automatically, so you can not make any mistake when using this command. So I can modify the line to: Some TSRs do not work correctly when loaded to upper memory, resulting in x,s or erratic system behavior.
Since UMA memory is managed in blocks the amount of free Upper Memory is usually larger than the largest contiguous free block. So the whole addressable memory from FFFF was used in the pc-design. No, but mostly you can delete lots of trash those programs have installed.

All that is just bleh. Select Speicherbelegung and you can browse through your lower 1MB memory and explore the installed programs and tables.
All programs listed here are drivers and tsr programs currently loaded. DOS programs, running in real mode or virtual x86 modecannot directly access this memory, but are able to do so through an application programming interface xks the eXtended Memory Specification XMS. Because of the available support for dps memory in popular applications, device drivers were developed that emulated expanded memory using extended memory.
In the end a optimized configuration is presented. Navigation Main page Recent changes Random page Help. By default such drivers are placed in conventional memory. In DOS memory managementextended memory refers to memory above the first megabyte 2 20 bytes of address space in an IBM PC or compatible with an or later processor.
