Information on Memory Management in Windows OS RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    i would like to know how the memory controller/(the functionality which allocates memory on HDD) works?

    to be more specific when is hit Ctrl + S to any file, what exactly happens on the back end? how it gets stored on the HDD? How the Physical and virtual address differs? and one last question, how does the address translation happens, how can we get the exact location of any file on HDD? is there any tool present which gives me the details of the convention used.
