Computers use the RAM of the computer to store the active programs, and perform other operating system functions. Obviously, there is a limit to how much RAM is available for this function. This is why Windows runs faster with more RAM installed.

Since Windows allows you to open multiple programs and switch between them, it is more efficient to "swap" inactive programs or parts of programs out of RAM, so a special disk files is created - "pagefile.sys".

Pagefile.sys is related to the "Virtual Memory" function of Windows.

You can see the pagefile setup by right clicking on My Computer, the go to Properties/Advanced/Performance/Advanced.

Vista Drive D maxed out HELP


What do you mean that you have space elsewhere.
Do you have other partitions on the same HDD?
Try this pagefile.sys is a file windows uses to set aside space for virtual memory. If you have 8 GB of RAM, you should have no need for this and can turn it off if you want.

Right click on My Computer and choose properties (or go control panel -> system). On the left, choose Advanced System Settings.
On the tab that pops up, at the top (in the 'Performance' section of the tab) choose Settings.
In the next window, choose the 'Advanced' tab and you will see the section for virtual memory at the bottom. Just click change and you will be able to set the size or turn it off completely. set your initial pagefile size to 400 set the max to 1000 MB.

Pagefile.sys problem


You will have separate pagefiles for each OS. You cannot use a single pagefile for multiple OS installs, they are unique to each OS.

Virtual Memory Minimum Too Low


Hi!

Here's the procedure on how to increase virtual memory of your PC:

Right click on My Computer > left click on Properties > Advanced > Settings > Advanced. Under Virtual memory left click on Change.

Select (left click) on the Drive on wich Windows XP is installed. In most cases this will be Drive C.

Under Drive:
Space available: Select the radio button labeled: Custom size:

To play it safe, in both the Initial (MB)size: and Maximun size: dialogue boxes type 2560 (i.e. allocate 2.5GB for the pagefile) provided you have the free memory space to spare. If you don't have enough free memory available enter the amount of memory you can spare, and meanwhile seriously consider getting a larger Hard Drive.

Mine is set to 4096MB (4GB), max. allowed by XP. This may seem like quite a lot, but the reason for this is that recent games now require a lot more real and virtual memory to function correctly, even if you have 2GB of RAM. Having a larger pagefile size does not hurt performance as such; it only takes up a bit of additional disk space.

After setting the new page file size left click on
OK > OK > OK. Then restart the computer.
