Hello smirk,

If you have enough hard drive space, I find letting the page file stay managed by the system works best.

If your Windows drive is a HDD, then moving the page file to another separate HDD will allow for a bit more performance.

If your Windows drive is a SSD, then it's fine to leave the page file on it.

Isn't virtual memory that thing I see all the time in Minecraft errors? Can a paging file get rid of those errors?

Hello Zephandrypus,

Could be. You could test by enabling the page file, and leave it set to be managed by the system.
