I "set" the virtual memory to point to D and click ok but it continues to default back to C after I return to the same window

pagefile partition must be NTFS, and better be local.

You can try firs to add a pagefile to the partition D, whitout erasing the pagefile in Partition C:, then apply restart the server and try to remove the pagefile in c or keep the pagefile but give the minimum size for that pagefile. Keep me posted

by "try and add"  what do you mean?  I thought you simply click on D in virtual mem windows and "set"

You need to specify the amount of memory you want to allocate to it.

I did that.  Maybe it's using D and I'm not aware of it but C is bracketed and it only when I click on D that it switches over.  Are there other ways to confirm which pagefile is currently being used?

If you have both setup then it will run both.

You should leave at least 300MB in C for crash dumps.

Microsoft recommends a minimun of 2 and max 50 but i would put 300MB as min and max.

The rest you put to D following the 1.5x rule.
