How to move PageFile on Server 2003

Posted on 2009-12-29
Last Modified: 2012-05-08
We are running out of space on the C: drive of our Primary Domain Controller (Server 2003).  We have plenty of room on the D: drive of this server, and would like to move the Pagefile from C: to D:

Can someone tell me how to do this?

    Hi Bruce !

    my computer --> properties--> advanced -- > perofrmance
    go to advanced tab once again and click "change" button in virtual memory section.
    click the volume label you desire (D in your case) , click "system managed size" and click "SET" (importent)
    click OK and reboot your server.
    now you can erase pagefile from C drive at c:\pagefile (hidden - read only)
