Windows 7: Pagefile placement on system booting from SSD

13 Feb 2013   #11

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

I know what you mean. Having 3 OSes installed onto a 240GB SSD RAID0 array with 16GB of RAM, I found that a large chunk of disk space was being set aside for the paging files. To remedy this, I created a dedicated 24GB partition on one of my HDDs and set it so that all OSes shared the same file. I didn't remove the paging files completely from the SSD, I just set them to be a fixed 1GB or 2GB size (I can't remember exactly) and then set the paging file on the HDD to be system managed.
