... to clarify - as I said there is a 4Gb limit for a single page file (on a 32bit system), but you can have multiple files on multiple drives (assuming you have more than one partition) - but I can't see it making any real difference in your scenario.

You can set a custom size in:

System Properties - Advanced - Settings - Advanced - Virtual Memory - Change and select Custom size.

Its so near the recommended that I'd leave it - the only way you can make it bigger is to have an additional swap file on another drive since the file is limited to 4Gb.

doh.

You cannot go above 4096 for a pagefile.

How much Ram do you have in their BTW.

We use Altiris to image systems where I work.  I have multiple systems whee I work that I can set the VM in excess of 4096 MB that don't have multiple drives or partitions.  Some of those systems don't even have the max of physical RAM.  There must be a reg fix or update that allows this.  Unfortunatly the information has been lost to me as the image creator is no longer with us.  Any other thoughts.
