Can the XP Pagefile.sys be assigned to a usb key?
Posted on 2008-02-04
I have a spare 2GB USB2 key kicking about redundant and was wondered whether it is possible to assign the XP professional pagefile.sys on my PC, to the 2Gb USB2 key and whether I'd see any performance increase throughout XP?
I would have thought that the key would be faster than hard-drive access but, need clarification on this..
System Specs:Asus A7N8X dual channel motherboard with 512mb crucial DDR PC3200 memory in both channels (1Gb total) pushed by an AMD XP 3.2 (Barton) CPU and a 80Gb Maxtor Hard-drive (7000rpm) UDMA 133 with 8mb cache.
Any info appreciated
