Where is my ram after upgrading to OS 3.1.4?

Hi all, I am running a stock A1200 at the moment and have just
upgraded to 3.1.4. Strange before upgrading and after startup my
Amiga would have 1.2 mgs available. Now I am only left with 725k,
where did the ram go and is it possible to get it back?
Truly appreciate any help.

@Punkyclown

I guess you did not replace the ROM's, as result the OS most patch & load the kickstart modules at boot, taking up RAM instead.

There is also an issue where Fast File System will use lot RAM, if partitions are really big. (if I remember correctly)

Yes, I did replace the ROMS... And before I had 1.2 mgs after startup
same exact system...

Okay so I was thinking that maybe some of my ram was bad.
So I disconnected my IDE drive and just loaded the system with
floppys and now I have 1.385 mgs.
Go Figure...

@Punkyclown

Maybe it has installed RAD: the reset proof ramdisk as default.

Or it has some memory hungry improofements, that doesn't make sense on unexpanded A1200.

@Punkyclown
they could not get everything to fit on the roms so your memory is being used for what would not fit. They updated a lot of the files and corrected a lot of errors. I haven't seen a GURU yet.
