    PocketMine only uses the folder it is installed it. It does not set any registry keys or create any files in AppData or somewhere else on your system.

    I might however want to add that putting it on a USB flash drive is a bad idea because they are not meant for continuous writing (like log files, worlds and player data) and might corrupt your world and or player data if used for a long time. Why would you want to do that anyways?

    I just want to add that I did not reply because you reposted your question, I would have replied to the old thread aswell. In fact, I almost decided not to reply because of that attitude, but I did anyways because I believe everyone should get an answer to their question.

    Where else do you expect it to occupy the RAM? In the air?

    lmao imagine reporting something small like this.

    so you expect your server to work without a cpu?

    also using your usb drive?Get ready for it to be toasted lol.Running my xubuntu live usb makes it go 70°C

    Why are you concerned about PocketMine using your RAM?
    You can restrict the server RAM usage at pocketmine.yml.
    If your system already has more than enough RAM, why does it matter that PocketMine uses your remaining RAM?
    As far as I know, there is no way for a program to run only using a hard drive as memory.
    If this was possible, at best, doing so would bring your program as like at least 100 times slower than usual. But even if it could, the data are probably still copied onto the CPU caches. Even if they don't, they are still copied into your CPU registers. What are you even bothered about?
