I have 1GB of RAM and I have disabled my paging file. Even if I run many programs simultaneously (including intensive games) Windows reports at least 400MB RAM free. Before disabling my page file I had approx 500MB memory in use and greater than 500MB page file. Therefore, now with the page file disabled shouldn’t the entire IGB RAM be in use?

heh

the size of the page file isnt always relevant to the amount of work being done.

in fact, on my machine i used to have a 270 meg page file, and i disabled it.

now, i have pretty much the same amount of my 396 megs available as i used to.

so, it didnt need that 270 meg page file, but it sure was hoarding it.

For any NT based O/S, I let it manage the paging file, I believe this is one case where Microsoft actually does know more about the topic than I do. :D

After due consideration, I'd have to agree with this too.
