Virtual RAM acts like RAM but doesn’t exist!

Confused? Well if the computer has really filled up its existing memory (RAM) then it uses part of your hard drive to simulate extra RAM.

If we think of RAM as your desk, then Virtual RAM is a bit like a pinboard that you can stick more working papers on as your desk gets full. Naturally, looking at stuff on the pinboard is slower and so is virtual RAM.

If this happens a lot, increase actual RAM or reduce how much you are using
