I was thinking more along the lines of using the operating system level memory mapping offered by Windows. This is supposed to be pretty efficient and work very much like virtual memory with frequently used areas kept in RAM. What I do not know is what kind of limitations Windows puts on memory mapped files :-)

A 1 GB file occupies a 1 GB address range (within the 2 GB virtual user address space area).
