Creating an Additional Pagefile
Posted on 2003-12-04
My server operating system partition is running out of space. I traced it down to my ever-growing pagefile. I would like to move the pagefile to a different partition. However, according to Microsoft, they recommend having 2 pagefiles. One would reside on the system partition, while the other is on a different one. How do I create an additional pagefile on a different partition, and how do I tell Windows to use the new pagefile?
Also, if it's using the new one, does the old decrease in size? Or do I need to move the old over r to another partition, then create a new one on the system partition?
