    Hi Guys.

    I've got windows XP SP2 and i've set my page file to 6gb, but I need to drop it down to the usual 1.5gigs.

    Can any one refresh my memory on how to do this?

    Right click my computer > properties > advanced > settings (under performance) > advanced > change (under virtual memory). :)

    I might as well kidnap this thread as its been sorted;

    How many people bother putting their paging file on a different disk to the O/S?

    I have a fixed PageFile of 3Gb on a separate hard disk. I used to have PageFiles on each of my hard drives, but with plenty of RAM I don't bother.

    My personal setup was to make a 4GB partition on the start of my raid0, ive then setup the swap file to use purely this space and done the reg-hack to hide the drive.
