If you mean the hard disk space the PC uses as "Virtual Memory" or "Page File" to augment its RAM, this needs to be on an internal disk. Accessing a separate PC over a network would be far too slow and potentially disastrous if the network link should be interrupted for any reason.

If you cannot provide a sufficiently large Page File with your existing hard drive, it needs to be replaced with a larger capacity one.
