What does it depend on? Why did I have 2 HDDs and only 1 swp file (directory specified in the 'virtual memory' tab) and now I have 4 drives and 2 swap files in 2 two different directories? how can that be possible?
I'm on win98sec. On MyComputer>properties>Performance>Virtual Memory I choose 'Let me specify my own virtual memory settings' and then assign a new directory to my new (faster) HDD. After rebooting I check my old HDD and I can see a copy of the swap files. It shouldn't be there, should it?
You have set a swap file on your new drive - but have you clicked on your old drive and adjusted the settings for that one?
Set the swap file to zero on C: if you really don't want a swap file on it, although many claim that splitting your swap file over two disks can speed up operations by allowing simultaneous access on both drives. This presumes that the two drives are on different IDE ports, of course.
The whole issue of swap file performance is not a precise science - if you need further reading, I also suggest that you click here
