Swapfile

I have a 200mmx, 32meg ram, 700meg hard drive left, windows95 and it is pausing a lot as it is using the hardrive making the clicking noise (I presume using it as ram)and is slowly getting worse. I have run scandisc and defrag a few times and doesn't make any difference. I have changed the virtual memory setting and am currently letting windows to do the setting (changing the setting didn't do much either).

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The clicking sound is a tell tale that you hard disk is on its last legs as for swap space that is not a problem is win 3.x or 95 will take 10% of the free disk space. So I would get a good back up of that disk or make an image of it
