Windows 7: SSD Drive Filling Up Fast

personally i've got 4 gigs of ram, and have set my pagefile to 512 megs.

i've often got lots of apps open, including biggies like photoshop, dreamweaver etc, and loads of browser tabs.

not had a problem yet. *crosses fingers*

if you start seeing 'not enough virtual memory' error messages, then you'll need to make it bigger.

Just to confirm all drivers are installed on the SSD drive and then all my games are installed on another drive. If the page file size is in correct will the system start to crash?

I will run the service pack clean up tool now


i'd move the pagefile to the (d drive)

Thanks for your reply

If I move it over to the other drive shall I leave the page file size at default?

OK,

I am trying to find the tutorial which shows how to change it over to the other drive but can't seem to find it.

if you really do want to move it:

set 'no paging file' on C - press 'set', then make a custom or system-managed-size pagefile on D (or E...).

it's up to you, but i've kept mine on C - as it's faster than D!

will it make that much of a difference in speed ? i always put it on the d and e drives
never thought about speed difference.

Thanks for your further replies,

I've decided to leave it on C for the time being, if I start to experience issues then I will probably move it over to the other drive.
