Hi there,

My harddrive is split into two partitions, does it matter on which partition I have my virtual memory file?

For instance, I have C:(OS) and D:(Data), does it make a difference on which drive the page file is?

Re: Virtual Memory Question

Since it's one physical drive, I don't think it matters. If it were two different drives, I'd be inclined to use the faster one.

Re: Virtual Memory Question

Hi, we don't get this sort of question as much as we used to, the reason XP and certainly Vista handle memory better then previous OS (Seven is better again) this is one area where the developer can make use of new technologies. So what Gistek has advised is correct, even with a two hdd setup it is somewhat mute to set up a separate partition for the pagefile. Hard to quantify the improvement.. I know we have tested this.
