Windows 7: Paging File

Paging File

When I go to boot up the computer sometimes it states that my computer has made a temp paging file. Doesn't tell me where, it side it did. I have a RAM Disk installed which I've told the paging file to go to, to include my temp files. I've done this because I have an SSD.

Ram disks can be dangerous. If you system crashes you lose the contents. If you have 16 gigs of ram you almost dont need a page file and you can prevent it from being used by making it small (1gig) and not expandable

Doesn't make sence. I too have an SSD, but I have a paging file on it as well. You are not 'optimizing' your SSD or OS by moving the paging files, and that would be the reason you get that error. You might try just simply reducing the paging file on the OS partition and creating another paging file for another hard drive. Say 1000MB or so for your main drive. You probably don't even need to create another paging file on another HDD if you have a lot of RAM
