iMac memory

Chris Burke

I have a mid 2011 iMac. I had a new 2tb internal hard drive installed by a certified Apple engineer in July 2015 (which shows absolutely masses of space on the iMac). I also installed 16 gig of ram in July 2015. I have a 1tb external hardrive which shows just under 500 gig space left and a second 500 gig external hard drive (which is almost full).

Can anyone tell me why, with all of this capacity, Logic Pro 9 has recently started crashing after displaying a warning pop up saying the "memory is almost full"?




I'd start by having Activity Monitor running, have a look a the CPU usage page, and see what's using up the RAM. There have been reports of process that keep replicating themselves and use up all the RAM. If you find one, at least you can google it and see if there is a way to stop it from doing this.
