    Sorry for being vague;


    The issue: When trying to download/veiw large file, over 39MB ebook file in my case; iPad2 cam with small pop-up window: Not enough memory.


    I checked General > About > Diagnostics & Usage > Diagnostic & Usage Data.

    There are crash reports( e.g LatestCrash-CitrixReceiver! where happens when I was trying to use Citrix), including many,

    LowMemory-2012-03-14-204745.plist files

    when I choose one of these reports I see another crash report: with information about ipad,...

    plus some information about different page files;

    e.g. Free, Active, Inactive,....


    SInce the LowMemory reports coincides with when I was downloading the lorge file and since I had the pop up menu; I guess there is something to do with memory usage of the iPad. I could not find any info about the physical memory, size or usage.


    You may try to send yourself a 39MB file( word,...which can be openned) and see if it happes on your iPad.

    Then we may find a solid answer for my question.

    iOS doesn't use swap space, therefore, only RAM will be available to processes. (That said, iOS does support paging executables.)
