Disk space full - can I move PAGEFILE.SYS
Posted on 2008-10-16
I have a Dell server running Windows Server 2003. It came pre-configured with a 12GB partition for the C: drive and it's pretty much full. I've moved the print spool to another partion to help keep the C: drive from filling up. I've also noticed that the business application software installers recently changed the PAGEFILE.SYS file to 1.5GB, presumably to help their MS-SQL based software to run. They are unavailable to ask, so I can only presume.
Can I move the PAGEFILE.SYS to another partion to free up some disk space? It has two physical SCSI hard drives mirrored RAID-1 with two partions ( C: and D:).
Can I move the PAGEFILE.SYS to the D: partition and if so, what's the safest procedure to do this?
