I have no doubt that would work, but I wouldn't put a pagefile on a SSD, because of the write wear aspect. I would keep it on another drive, as you did before.
I think the "write wear" problem for the pagefile is being highly exaggerated because
a) if you have 3 or 4GBs of RAM, the system will hardly ever write to the pagefile. You can check that easily in the Resource Monitor > memory tab. I bet the hard page faults are zero or very small numbers. And
b) if you really only have 2GBs of RAM, take $20 or $40 and buy another GIG. That is no big expense compared to the cost of the SSD.
