The best way to decrease the load on your RAM, is to get more RAM.
How much RAM do you have (right click My Computer / select Properties / under the General tab, how many MB of RAM do you have)?
What's your Operating System (XP Home, XP Pro, etc., ....)?
Why do you think you need to free up more RAM?
Have you been getting error messages?

FAT32 or NTFS?
Start / Control Panel / Performance and Maintenance / Administrative Tools
Double-click Computer Management.
Under Storage, on the left, click Disk Management.
On the right, under the File System column, it will tell you the file system used, on each drive.
