Hi!

Is there available any pagefile defragger for Vista/7?

I have been using PageDefrag v2.32 for years for XP, but seemingly it will not install on Vista.  I followed a suggested procedure on net to install it, but didn't succeed with it.

Any suggestions/hints?  Thanks in advance.


Best regards,

Pete V.

I think you will find it does not need defragging. It stays statically on the disk (at least it does on my systems). Windows will normally create it contiguously and then use it only in that spot (for performance reasons). ... Thinkpads_User

In Virtual memory settinge - No Pagefile - Set - Reboot. Put it back to system managed or the max recommended custom size - reboot. A new contiguous file, but why?
