Pagefile setting on Windows 2008

kam_uk used Ask the Experts™
Hi Guys

I need to find out the following for a W2008 server:

i) If there is a page file set
ii) How large it is
iii) Where it is located

So, I have gone to Computer>Properties>Performance>Virtual memory

It says that the "total paging file size for all drives" is 8489MB
The box for "Automatically manage paging file size for all drives" is checked

And it says:

"Total paging size for all drives:

Minimum allowed: 16MB
Recommended: 12283MB
Currently allocated: 8489"

So would I be correct in thinking that this server has 8GB page file set?

But where is it exactly?
