new to BC, but been working with computers since Middle School. I also have my ITE certs from CISCO, so don't be afraid to get technical with me. (I'm also a student developer, just not usually on Windows...)
I'm at a loss with this problem. Windows Task Manager is misbehaving. Task Manager identifies 50% RAM usage (8.1/16GB) - but won't identify correctly what is using that RAM. Specifically, I have a Virtual machine running (Usually CentOS, but I do have a Win X VM.) which is set for 2 Cores & 4GB of RAM. When any VM runs, my host machine will not identify the process using that RAM. VirtualBox isn't the only program to do this. For example, my Windows X VM by default runs 1.2GB RAM usage. Host machines reports 94MB. The difference between the two highest processes is 1.4GB and 94MB. I have had issues with some games doing it as well. (ARK:SE has previously had issues).
Host machine (also Win 10) was just reinstalled following an... unfortunate mishap in a live environment. (Haha - I still laugh at that mess up. That's for Reddit though, not BC)
I've taken 2 screenshots of my Processes tab (sorted by RAM usage highest to lowest) and my Performance tab. I've tallied the number of processes and added all the values together under RAM. Doesn't even touch 8GB.
