File size and interaction

My windows paging filing in 744Mb.  I am concerned about the size and what its purpose is.   Can I make it smaller and or does it need to be cleaned up?

The pagefile is used by and managed exclusively by the system. Unless you have a very specific need and you understand what you are doing your policy towards this file should be strictly hands off. If you are having disk space problems you should really look elsewhere for a solution, preferably a bigger disk.
