When I unchecked "Hide protected operating system files" feature, I found out this pagefile.sys file which has about 5.12GB.
What's that file for? Can I just get rid of it or, at least, reduce its size?
You dont actually have to have a page file especially if you have 4gigs or more of ram. You want tro set a lower and upper limit not let the system manage it. I have zero page file and nothing has happens. If you are more caoutious set on on a diff drive than where yhe OS is and make it abt 1.5 times the amount of ram
Hope this helps and let me know how it turns out
