Windows 7: Huge pagefile.sys file

04 May 2010   #31

Windows 7 x64 Professional SP1

Sorry to gravedig this topic, small question

I recently upgraded my laptop (ASUS N53Jq) from 6GB to 8GB. So the pagefile increased in size, and it really bothers me to have it on C. Can I put this pagefile on D? If yes, how?

Thank you for your time.
