thanks for your help!
A page file is part of a hard drive that acts as memory, yours is on the wrong drive, it belongs on the C drive, and with 16 GB of memory you really don`t even need a Page File, but it should at least be shrunk down to a Minimum of 2 GB and a Maximum of 4 GB, ask if you don`t know how to change that.

I told you the entire 500 GB SSD has to be deleted to unallocated space, then you create a primary partition out of the entire 500 GB SSD, then align and format the partition, all this can be done with Partition Wizard.

You did not delete the 500 GB SSD down to unallocated space yet, you couldn`t have, it`s still marked Active and it still has a Page File on it.

Only Disk 0 should be marked Active.

Did you download the Free Home Version of Partition Wizard ? Sounds like you downloaded and installed a Pro Trial, there should be no reason PW won`t do all those things.

Right click on Disk 1 and Disk 2 in Disk Management and see if it will let you set them inactive, let us know what happens.

This is how you change your page file, as you can see, I don`t use one.

This is how your Disk Management should end up, disregard Disk 0 in this example, my ASMedia sata controllers are the primary controllers on this board and that`s just where the Intel SSD ends up, but just ignore it.

Look at Drives 2 through 6, that`s exactly how your Drives 1 and 2 should look. No Page File and Not marked Active.
