How to force Windows 7 to use the entire available RAM

It is a little known fact that Windows 7 doesn’t use the entire available RAM by default. For example if you have 8GB of RAM and a 64-bit Windows 7, it will use around 7.1GB of it (in the case of 4GB of RAM and 32-bit Windows 7, it will use around 3.5GB). The reason for this behavior is not completely known, but it is quite possible to alter it – to force Windows 7 to use all available RAM.
How do we do this? First, open the Start menu and enter msconfig in the start search box:

Restart your computer for the changes to take effect:

Using Bacula with HP autoloaders | Basics
