I am back to 23.5GB free on the SSD after making the above changes to virtual memory settings.
If you run the command without administrator privileges (from an "ordinary" command prompt), you will get an error saying you don't have the right privileges.
You didn't mention that, so I assume you ran it as an administrator.
If you notice no difference in disk free space, I can only assume it was already disabled.
I just tested it on my own machine--turning it on and back off.
I immediately noticed the difference when I did a right click on the drive in Explorer and checked free space.
I have no explanation if you are using it correctly.
Try this: enter the command "powercfg -h on". That turns hibernation on. See if your free space decreases. If it does, you are doing things correctly and you can then enter "powercfg -h off" to turn it back off.
What did you find with System Restore?
