Out of memory exceptions when debugging large file upload requests


I've just was dubugging large (0.5 GB) files uploading. For testing purposes I several times aborted upload sessions using "Abort session" context menu item. While doing this I've got many out of memory exceptions.

    Hi Eric,

    thank you for given comment.

    BTW my settings are set to "Autonatically manage paging file size" and I've got some free space on my drive. During debugging amount of free space was not changing.

    Interestingly, you are running 64bit Windows and 64bit Fiddler so this should never happen to you unless either 1> Your hard disk is full, or 2> Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Advanced > Performance Settings > Advanced is configured such that you either do not have a PageSwap file or you've artificially constrained its size.
