Normally this is achived by purchasing and installing additional ram.

How are you trying to create this file? Are you sure this is about memory? Perhaps this is about the file system you are using.


Also, 1TB is a _very_ large file: are you really trying create a 1TB file?

What says "low memory"? How much ram do you actually have?

Please do not yell.

Actually my question is
"how to increase base memory or what should I do because for example: if I want to create a 1GB file Backtrack unable to create that with an error LOW Disc space?" PLEASE HELP HOW TO FIX THIS

This doesn't seem to be memory related, but disk space related.

Without knowing what setup you are using I can only give some general advise:
- Remove unwanted/unneeded files to create some space,
- Add more disk space.

This may be memeory related if you run Backtrack as a live session, for example from a Live-CD.
In this case creating a 1GB file will fail if you have not enough RAM, because the file will be created in memory.
There are 2 solutions:
- Mount a filesystem from disk, for example an existing Windows partition and create the file there
- Install more RAM

You are correct! I completely overlooked that possibility.
