Page file question

  1. I have my page file on drive F. I had it set to a specific size. The other day I had to do a repair and now I go back and have two page files. One on the OS side drive C and also on drive F. It has been over a year and a half since I have done this and I don't do it often can anyone remind me what size the page file of my drive f should be and what size the one on drive c should be? I know I can't delete the page file on c because I have tried and it would not let me. Anyone? Thanks.

    Vista 64bit.

    Read=> Change the size of virtual memory

    Basically it's a matter of playing around a bit with the Min and Max values
    This all depends upon how much Ram you have installed, typically 4Gig on Vista 64, many users elect anywhere from 1Gig to 3Gig (or smaller ;) )

    Note: If you only have one Harddrive, you only need 1 Pagefile (typically on C drive)
    If you have 2 Harddrives (not partitions) then put your Pagefile on the 2nd Harddrive

    No one has got the exact amount set in stone, it's a matter of adjusting and testing
