We have changed pagefile.sys from c:\ drive to d:\drive, but want to erase pagefile.sys from c:\.

Not able to do it.

Need to resolve that due to just one 1g hard disk space available left.

We are using a DC Windows Server 2003 STD R2

Make sure that you hit no paging file for C and hit the set button.  After that ok through the screens and reboot the server.  You can then delete the pagefile if it still exists.  It will be in use until the reboot.
