Saving memory states periodically and often is one of the most significant activities that you can perform using MemoryScape. Because fixing memory problems is tricky, you need a way to tell if you are actually fixing the problem. As a matter of fact, it often occurs that <i>fixes</i> can make memory problems worse. <p>By adding these saved memory debugging files back into MemoryScape--do this using the <b>Home | Add Programs</b> screen--you can compare the memory state of the currently executing program with the state information you saved previously. You can even compare two different saved states against one another.
<p>This saved memory state is rather complete. You can create memory reports against this information in exactly the same way as you create memory reports for an executing program.
<p>And finally, even if you don't think you'll ever use saved information, you should save ot. It's better to delete information you don't need than be upset that you didn't save it.
