Paging file location
Posted on 2005-04-18
I am trying to figure out the optimal place to put the paging file for a Windows 2003 Server. I have one IDE drive that has two partitions: C and E. The C drive has the operating system. and I have a RAID 5 configuration that is the D drive. What would be the best place to put the paging file? I have read that it's better not to keep it on the boot volume and instead to keep it on an entirely different hard drive (in my case that would be the RAID drvies), but not sure if that is the best way to go or not. Also read that there should be some paging file on the boot volume so that the system dump can be recorded if there is a crash. Any ideas?
