Why do you want to change it???

I am just doing a bit of 'spring cleaning' if you like on my system and have never changed this function.I just thought that it seemed a little low for the size of the hard drive and the amount of usage my PC gets , also I know that if it is set too low then it can impact on the speed your PC is running at.

Usually 1.5 x installed memory. If your system is running ok best to leave it alone. You will not see any significant difference by changing it.

The size of the hard drive has nothing to do with virtual memory settings. The only influence is how much RAM you have.

But it's far better to leave it to Windows to choose for tself - it happens to be quite good at doing the correct thing.
