I am doing a long memory consuming calculation. At certain point I get variable contaning huge amount of numerical data. I process it and don't need it anymore. Is there a way to delete it and RELEASE the memory it takes, i. e. make it available? I tried ClearAll[...], it deletes the variable but the memory doesn't become available - I watch the Windows Task Manager and it doesn't show increase in the available memory. I know quitting the kernel releases all the used memory but it stops the calculation which I don't want. If I don't release the memory of variables I no longer need, soon I ran out of memory, that's why I need to know how to make the memory available again during calculation.
