My drive is partitioned C and D. pagefile was located on the C drive. When I turned machine on this afternoon I got a warning of low memory on D; checked and now pagefile is on D and not on C. Something similar has happened before but then I had 2 copies of pagefile 1 on C and 1 on D. I was able to delete the 1 on D; I am reluctant to do that this time as there is no pagefile on C.
how big is your hard drive? how much space is there on drive "C" and "D"? the best setting if you are using windows xp sp2 is for windows to allocate as required and not as a fixed number. tall tales used to say set as one and a half times the ram, or three times the ram but since SP2 this really is no longer a good idea
How much ram do you have? It's usual to set the pagefile to 1.5x the amount of ram. Your D drive is awfully small?? so I would move the pagefile to C drive.
Open System in Control Panel. On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings. On the Advanced tab, under Virtual memory, click Change. Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change. Under Paging file size for selected drive, click Custom size, and type a new paging file size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, and then click Set. If you decrease the size of either the initial or maximum page file settings, you must restart your computer to see the effects of those changes. Increases typically do not require a restart.
