can i put 7's pagefile on 32-bit (D:) drive?

I have 64-bit Windows 7 running on drive C.
w/ Readyboost enabled (if this matters)

Is it possible / feasible to move my pagefile to my 32-bit (D) drive?

I googled but couldn't find an answer.

thanks.

Your hard drive is not 32-bit....it's the OS that resides on the drive. As long as the drive is formatted with a file system that Windows can use (Fat, Fat32, NTFS,) than you can put it there.

Yes, you can without any trouble.
(providing there isn't already another pagefile on that drive)
