Keeps track in real time of how much RAM you have available as well as to how much is being currently used and cleans the memory when necessary or when instructed to. The tool optimizes the operating system's overall performance and works without requiring to be installed.

Cleaning your computer’s RAM memory from unnecessary data can have very positive results on performance. Mem Reduct can help you monitor memory usage and increase the available free space. The application is very easy to use. As a matter of fact, you hardly ever need to interact with it, as it can start together with the system and run from the System Tray. A small icon showing the percentage of used memory is actually the only visible sign that the program is doing its work. The color of the icon depends on the amount of free memory, depending on the percentages you set for the warning and danger levels.

A left click on this icon opens the program’s main window, which shows details about the current state of the physical memory, the page file and the system working set. From there, you can also free memory with a single click on the corresponding button. However, this isn’t the only way you can do that as the application supports automatic cleaning with a given frequency or when the defined level is surpassed. Besides, it’s also possible to configure a hotkey for this operation.

While it’s true that Mem Reduct is a small program, it’s also very good at what it does. Every time I tested the tool, it managed to free around 25% of my computer’s RAM. Better than just that, Mem Reduct lets you decide on which areas of the RAM are to be cleaned. Considering its effectiveness and zero cost, this application definitely deserves a try.
