Windows 7: Page File

13 Jun 2012   #1

Windows 7 Pro SP1 32-bit
Page File

Hi there,

I have 1 HDD with 2 partitions.
Where is the best place to put Page File ?

Is that the same, cause it's just 1 HDD and it really matters with 2 HDD's , or ?

Thanks for any kind of information,

Its been debated to death, if you're limited in space as in a small SSD just reduce pf to 1GB min/max otherwise, leave pagefile as is.

Right, leave it with the OS. If you have a lot of RAM (4GB or more), it will hardly ever be use anyhow.

It should be on the fastest part of the disk which is the first partition.
