Deleting the Swap File
Posted on 2001-07-03
I have 2 physical drives. Drive C is boot and D is a new much faster IBM drive I added recently for music. "C" is partitioned into C,E,F,G.
I moved my swap file from "C" to "D" recently and that went fine. But, I noticed there is a swap file still left sitting on "G" drive. Odd. I never put it there, but had it on "C". Still, the swap file has been moved to "D".
1. Can I delete this swap file left on "G"? Will it cause a problem? Why do you suppose it's there?
2. If I delete an active swap file will it cause a problem or will Windows just rebuild it on the next boot?
Note: My swap file is set as a fixed size, 256MB.
