Windows 7: Huge pagefile.sys file

04 May 2010   #31

Windows 7 x64 Professional SP1

If the partition is on another physical drive, then yes it might.. If it's on the same drive, it'd be the same as if its on the system partition to begin with.

Sorry to gravedig this topic, small question

I recently upgraded my laptop (ASUS N53Jq) from 6GB to 8GB. So the pagefile increased in size, and it really bothers me to have it on C. Can I put this pagefile on D? If yes, how?

Thank you for your time.
