I wouldn't use the switch "EmptyWorkingSets". Too dangerous.

Allocating a large amount of physical memory to the cache slows down your computer performance, and the system becomes unresponsive when running certain I/O programs. The Windows System File Cache may eat up all available RAM in order to run demanding jobs, so limiting the maximum size of the system cache file is a solution that can get you out of trouble.
Setting a limit on the system cache doesnít necessarily imply that the cache manager will never use more memory that the imposed limit. Itís going to consume it when thereís enough memory available.
Limiting its working set does not mean that the cache manager will never
use more memory for cache than the limit defines. It's the working set
only which is limited. You will still have a large cache when there is
enough availlable memory. But running processes are no more the favourite
victim when new cache memory is required.
I use the method of flushing.

- My experience is that when I collapses the "Standby" memory (or System Cache) then my system (without an SSD) will become (much) slower for - at least - 30 to 45 minutes.
- One can easily collapse the File cache without any slow down. Because the file cache is in the "In Use" part of the memory and NOT part of the "System Cache". Then the (killed) file cache is moved from the "In Use" part to the "Standby" part of the memory.
- The program mentioned above supposedly can kill one (of the 7) part(s) of the "Standby" memory.

Or use CLEANMEM. It reduces the memory usage of the "In Use" part of the memory. (Remember DEFRAGGLER with its "memory leaks" ?)
