    But see the thing is I'm trying to make it use the free space on my WD 3TB Hard Disk and it just won't mount...

    Not sure you can use an external HD for this.
    In my mind it creates a memory swap into a SD to expand memory.
    Didn't try by myself.

    Just thought I'll do a quick update on the best setup for use of the Roehsoft Ram Expander app.
    I'm using a Samsung Evo SD Card with just the minimal storage size of 16GB, and out of which I've used the Roehsoft Partition Tool app to create a first partition of 10GB in Fat32, to use as a holding for whatever downloads designated by the ES File Explorer app, and also for any system and app backups via the Titanium Backup App. The second partion of whatever remaining storage space is also formatted in Fat32 and used for ram swap via the Roehsoft Ram Expander app, I used the Optimal Values option to select partition two of my sdcard and allowed the app to auto define the ram swap size and swappiness under the best Gaming option. This really is the best setting I've tried out so far which gives me an extra of 4.92GB of virtual ram so I'm currently running my U1 with a total of 6.66GB worth of ram. [​IMG][​IMG]
