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)

Cannot Set PageFile
My computer has slowed right down lately and I tracked the problem to the pagefile which has suddenly disappeared. When I try to set it back to system managed and click the 'set' button, there is a popup in the system tray that says "SystemPropertiesPerformance.exe - corrupt file". Any ideas?
