I've heard 2 different explanations regarding the page file and I'm wondering if someone could clarify this for me. One says: when physical memory is used up, pages of info start getting transferred to the page file. Second one says: that a full copy of whats stored in ram is maintained in the page file "all the time" and that information isn't "madly" transferred out of ram when it reaches its limit because it's already there. The information is just dropped out of ram. Which is correct? Thanks everyone!
