    YourPhoneServer.exe - excessive RAM usage/memory leak?


    I noticed yesterday that YourPhoneServer.exe is using excessive RAM, it appears to have a memory leak as the RAM use increases all the time.

    Also, if I sign out of my PC or do a restart, I have to re-link the app for it to work again.

    Last update of the app was March 6th

    I'm experiencing the same issue, the YourPhoneServer process just keeps allocating memory forever.

    Perhaps the problem is the new clipboard synchronization feature (Settings -> Features -> Cross Device Copy Paste).

    I've disabled it, I guess it will take a day or two to see if it's solved.

    Makes no difference, it's already off here. The last 3-4 updates to Your Phone haven't fixed the problem.

    Yep, you're right, I can already see it's sill leaking about 40MB an hour. Well that sucks.

    I raised it on Feedback hub weeks ago but had no response. Luckily I have 32GB of RAM, it was only when I spotted a high number in task manager that I became aware of the problem. All I do is every day (or less) is stop the process and let it restart to clear the RAM.

    Hi there. Registered here just to chime in: Memory leak from YourPhoneServer.exe for me too!

    I noticed it get to 1 Gb of RAM after leaving it running two days in a row. Not Good!

    I'll do a feedback hub request as well.

    Leak still there, I had it third time, it might be connected with receiving a RCS (chat) message with a high resolution photo on my Galaxy S10.
