Now you're confusing me. What do you mean by "memory space" and "address
space"? Paging involves (among many pther things) moving data between
main memory and a backing store. The data belongs to the "address space"
of a process, or possibly several processes in the case of shared pages.
"Address space" is a logical concept meaning the range of addressable
memory locations in the process virtual memory. I've no idea what you
mean by "memory space" unless it's the physical main memory.
