I have 4024 Megabytes Usable Installed Memory (according to Belarc Advisor Computer Profile) and one 128GB SSD. If I understand you (and the next post) right, hibernate is taking 4GB of space.

Edit: hiberfil.sys is 3,089,680 KB. Say "Goodbye", Hibernate.

You are correct.

The other day someone had 24GB of RAM and was all amazed that his 60GB SSD was completely full. He had 48GBs for the hiberfile and the pagefile. That was easy to fix - no hiberfile and a pagefile of 2GB.

OK, this is strange. In Control Panel I clicked "Change Power Settings", then "Change advanced power settings". The settings "Allow hybrid sleep" was already set to "off" and "Hibernate after" was already set to "Never". But hibernate has been in my menu for a long time - in fact, I have it set to be the default shutdown choice.

Why won't it disable? Is it because I have it set as the default? If so, how do I fix that? (Should this be a new thread?)

See my post 10.

It must be done from an elevated command prompt with that specific command.

You were right. I skipped your post because I wanted to use the regular window GUI because that way I am more likely to remember where it is. But clearly, the GUI does not always work. (Aside: Why the heck not? It just lowers my confidence in Windows.)

Anyway, hiberfil.sys is gone.

pagefile.sys is 4,119,576KB. My Virtual Memory is set to "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives". Shouldn't that make the pagefile the most optimal, albeit large, size?

A pagefile of 1GB or 2GB is enough. The only drawback is that you do not get a full memory dump in case of a BSOD - but let's hope that never happens.

I would mention that if you have nearly filled a 128GB SSD you might check out some other data storage strategies. By that I don't mean abandon the SSD (no way!), just to find other places to place things which either are infrequently used or won't benefit much from the improved access time. I'd recommend that you fill in the rest of your system specs so we can give you more precise advice.

Fine-tuning things like swap file and hibernation usage is a good thing overall, but you need to recover more space than those types of things are going to get you.

I would never abandon my SSD. In the first month I owned this thing, while turning around in a parking log, I accidentally smacked the laptop into a cement block (you know, the base of one of those things which holds up lights, or something like that). I can be an abusive owner. I've lost data on laptop's HDDs in the past.

You mean, like burning my once frequently used class notes and recordings - but I've finished my class work - to a CD?

Here is a pic of my system specs that I took way back when I first got this thing, but I haven't changed any of the hardware (if there's a better way than this massive screenshot to provide the info, lemme know). Note that my Lectures folder - the one with my class notes (recordings) - is just less than 8GB (after zipping), so I will need to clean more stuff.

And thanks, everyone, for your help.

You can fill out system specs through the user control panel at the top of the page and then "edit system specs" on the left side.

How much of that 128 GB SSD is Windows and installed programs?

How much of it is personal data?
