Windows 7: High Page Table Usage?

Can you give me any tips on how to optimize my disk cleanup? I'll clean up my drive then once and for all, maybe defrag it twice a week if possible

I have found that defragging does very little until their is at least 10 to 15 % free space. Hopefully even more.

A defragging program need room to move things around while defragging and that requires free space.

I have found when I used hard drives was Windows 7 built in defragging worked as well or better than 3rd party programs. Of course that is just my opinion on some test I did a year or so ago.

When Windows 7 has free space to work with, I have found that it really doesn't get fragmented very much unless one is adding and removing lots of things. I always checked the fragmentation level first before defragging. Over 15 % and I would defrag.

Defragging a hard drive several times a week is a lot of wear and tear on hard drives.

Note:
Nothing works properly with Windows 7 unless it has free space (elbow room).

Defragging with Auslogics is different than using most other defraggers. When run with no options it does a quickie defrag and does not add wear and tear to the drive even if done every day. In reality my defrags with 70% free space typically take 5 minutes. I sometimes say 10 because if I say 5 then people don't believe me and I get into one of those time wasting defrag arguments. The reason it does not wear out the drive is precisely because it does not do a thorough job. But it is just enough that one notices an improvement after running it.

Myself I am sticking to Auslogics 5.4.0.0, at least for awhile. Version 6.x introduces new features and thereby the chance of bugs. I have never had an issue with 5.x.

So now i have freed a lot of space on my drive D: (it's now 20gb) and some on C: but i'm still planning to clean it (7gb) and what do you think will be the preferred amount of page file on my pc? I plan to move it to D: though, is it okay?

I would concentrate on maximizing the free space on C: before worrying about the page file. As for page file parameters ask 10 people and you will get a 10 way argument. Try to get over 40% free space on C: to start.

No not me.
I will not argue about what works for some. If it works and makes one happy, go for it.

I haven't used a 3rd party defrag program in about 3 years. As we know in the computer world that is forever. I would imagine their have been many improvement with such programs.

All and all MilesAhead we do agree that Windows 7 need free space to work properly.
Some call free space as wasted space. Not really, it is what is needed for Windows 7 to work as it was designed. Free space is like a spare tire. A waist until you need it. Then your in the oooh shoot where is my spare tire/free space.

Mark9870 if you notice MilesAhead and I don't argue, we just have different methods of doing things.
You will have to choose what works best for you. But none will work properly without the proper free space. That's the bottom line.

My choice for memory is this. It works for me and my systems.

Windows defrag.exe has also improved in recent years. I don't argue against it. For me auslogics gets it out of the way. But at times I will use the Windows defrag esp. for analysis.

I have set my page file to automatically manage page file size.
Then i encountered a blue screen while uploading some files, the memory usage was about at 96%, then it bluescreened.
The bluescreen i got was SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION but then i can't find the crash dump. Then it followed a chkdsk that bugged me since i started the pc. I have had this bluescreen about 2-3 times already, since last month i think.

Did you configure your OS to create a small memory dump? Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Yes, it is configured but it's configured for a kernel memory dump and i can't find it anywhere :/ I've changed it to small memory dump now though.

I think i will be able to squeeze up to 40% of disk space on C:. It's currently 37% .I just deleted a bunch of files and games that are lying around and even on 20-30% free disk space, it had a performance boost for my pc i am also not getting sudden freezing anymore But i can't delete some files due to them being placed on the appdata folder, but i'll keep trying to remove files that i don't use anymore I don't even know if the page table usage is high or not, but i don't think it'll bother me anymore. I checked the page table while making this post, and though i kept the pc running for about a very long time, the page table is low! I think my problem is solved now Thanks!
