I have a logical partition solely dedicated to Windows XP and its files. However, at the initial stages, I thought 2GB would suffice, even with the common files of Microsoft products. Wrong.
Of the 2GB I have, only 100MB is leftover, and I need more than that to stash the temp files from installation of software (although I can relocate that folder as well).
However, along with pagefil.sys, there is a hiberfil.sys that is set to 256MB on my Windows XP partition. I tried to scouring around in the preferences for relocating or even abolishing this file, but to no avail.
So my question is: How can I relocate and/or delete the hiberfil.sys? Can I relocate it to another partition, and if so, can I reduce it's size?
Thanks in advance.
