Ghosting and pagefile

By jstaron

  1. Hi,

    I'm Ghosting my C: Drive, which has my XP on it. However, the pagefile is on the D: drive, which I want to delete and reformat. Please advise.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    You can split your pagefile, e.g. 100MB on your C-drive (which then gets ghosted) and the rest on another drive, like D. You can reformat D as long as you put the (rest of) the pagefile back on it before you restore C.
    C will happily run temporarily with that small pagefile.
