Low on Memory

Post by zephyr » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:44 am

I am demoing Usenetic and am getting this error on my 16GB MACBOOK.

How do I perform this procedure? I have searched Documentation but don't see help for it

Also, just saw that when I close Usenetic, the connecitons try and close but never do. It just sits there.

If the individual files your are downloading are huge (like a GB each) then they eat up a lot of memory, since all files are being processed in memory. When the memory usage is above as what is configured in the preferences then the download pauses until more memory is available again.

When you close Usenetic, it tries to disconnect the remaining connections. You can click the cancel button If this takes too long or disable this feature in the preferences.
If you like Usenetic, please give it 5 stars at MacUpdate: https://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/59624/usenetic
