When MemMaker reports values in the Change column for conventional memory and upper memory, the values may not be the same. For example, MemMaker may report you have 58K more conventional memory and 62K less memory in the upper memory area (UMA).


Under ideal conditions, these two numbers are the same. If one of the following conditions exist, the values for the change in conventional and upper memory don't match:
    A program that loads itself into the UMA changes size (for example, SMARTDRV.EXE)
    The expanded memory manager (EMM) that MemMaker loads (EMM386.EXE) utilizes the UMA differently from the current EMM
    A program that MemMaker configured to load into the UMA did not because of an unanticipated problem.
