Should I change the swap file disk?

Having recently got a new 80OB HDD (and having set it up succesfully thanks to the nice people on this forum :D) I wonder if it would be a good idea to change the swap file location to the new drive, seeing as I'm down to MB not GB on the old one. Maybe people could advise me? Thanks.

Hi HS,
Yes it could be a good idea, we all have to make the most of what we have and it sounds as if you could be "Tight" on space.
Best,
Charles

I meant 80GB, not OB...just in case that caused any confusion...

Will it improve the performance of my computer significantly?

How much memory you got?

...generally what apps do you have open?

  Handy Spinner 18:47 21 Feb 2004

256Mb, but 32Mb of that is devoted to graphics.

Internet, Office applications, Musicmatch.

Persoanlly i would upgrade yerr RAM as well.

Control Panel, System, Advanced, Setting (1st), Advanced, Change,

Set your first HDD to have no page file, click SET

Now set your second HDD to have a system maged size or input your initial and max values.

Click SET!

Click OK!

Reboot.
