Running XP with 256 RAM I am proposing to move the swap file to it's own partition. Currently the swap file+RAM is a little under 1.gig. Question: I believe windows allocates it's own swap file size and I thought that a partition of 2.gig would be OK, or does anyone have other suggestions
putting swap file in its own partition, would have the hard drive working all the time, separate drive is an option, but I am running XP with 256 ddr, and I have disabled the swap file altogether, and it flys.
Putting the swap file in it's own partition may actually slow things down. A new partion will be further away from where the disk heads are most of the time - therefore to access the swap file they may have further to move - further to move means more time - thus slower.
