Hello, i use rhino 6 with vray4 and every time i render the disk space from 24gb drops to 500mb.As a result my pc becomes laggy and unresponsive. When the render stops the space goes up to 6gb and to regain full space i have to restart the pc. Is there a bug with the ram usage? or is just scratch disk space?
Doesn’t sound like a bug to me. Sounds like normal windows paging file useage. You just need more free disk space! You want your paging file on an SSD ideally… If you don’t have an SSD as your primary drive anyway you could move your paging file (virtual memory) onto another hard disk. If you do have an SSD as the primary drive you just need to free up some space. I consider 50gb free as a hard limit, but more is better.
it’s also the question what percentage of your total drive size the remaining free 24gb represent… if your sdd is filled up to more than 75% that could also add to the problem, on an hdd you might get away with a bit more… if so I’d strongly consider upgrading or at least cleaning up some space
