|Applies to: All 32-bit Versions of Windows when using Reflect File and Folder backup. If you see a similar message when running Macrium Reflect on a 64-bit, please see Out of Memory article.|
32 bit Windows has a limit to the amount of application memory it can address regardless of the amount of internal RAM you have installed. Your memory can become fragmented and this means that you may receive an 'Out of memory' error during a file and folder backup even though Windows task manager shows memory available. To overcome this Windows can be set to allocate more memory to compatible applications that are configured for IMAGE_FILE_LARGE_ADDRESS_AWARE. Macrium Reflect is configured for this.
