# 1 Reduced file streaming (on/off)
01-12-2010, 01:33 AM
I'm confused. In the client options -> Video, under troubleshooting settings, there is an option called:

'Reduced file streaming: Reduces streaming of data off disk by keeping it loaded into RAM. Turning this off on systems with low amounts of RAM could lead to crashes.'

When it is ON, this means that more data is kept on RAM (ie. better for higher RAM computers)?
When it is OFF, this means that more data is being streamed from HD (ie. better for lower RAM computers)?

or do i have this backwards? Why would it cause crashes on lower RAM computers when this option is turned off?

I'm just thinking it could be backwards or am i missing something?
