Dear Kenny or anyone

Further to my problem I have about 100 files both in works and Notes.
I use the "find" to search for key words. If I place all my files on a
PC card and use the find again heap goes down from 400K down to 2K
sometime giving error not enough heap.

If I take the card and place into my emate the "find"takes much longer
but heap 120K is reclaimed after find finishes.

Question why should the same files perform differently under find in
the emate and 2100 ?

Where do I get Avi's backdrop from ?


Do you have any Heap Garbage Collection software like Avi's Backdrop
or Dash Board? If you do and they show only 1k, did you try opening
another program. If you can, it could be the reading was not updated.

Don't know why though.:-(

To my original question

I have a heap problem with MP2100.
