While investigating a memory leak I found an unexpected behavior and I’d like sharing my thoughts.
I have a Colibri VF61 V1.2A with the official Win CE6 1.5 downloaded from Toradex website.
Every time I plug USB cable in X29 connector of Evaluation Board V3.2A, Windows Mobile Center pops up on my Win 7 laptop.
On Colibri module I launched Start >> Control Panel >> System Poperties and I switched to “Memory” tab.
I noticed that every time I plug the USB cable, the Program Memory In Use
increases a little bit (and this is OK); when I unplug the cable, the memory decreases but never back to the original value.
With other words, every USB plug/unplug cycle increases a little bit the memory “In Use” (more or less 50 kB).
Could this be an issue for a device which must run 24/7?
