Winodws 2003 R2, move page file to virtual drive in RAID 5 array

Hello all,

I'm quickly running out of room on my C: drive and I'm looking to free up some space.  I'm currently in the process of cleaning up the drive in the hope that I can get some much needed overhead.

One of the options I'm looking at is moving the page file from the C: drive to the D: drive.  I realize that I will gain no discernible performance increase in doing so (based on the RAID5 configuration) but would it be safe to do so and would this help regain some of the disk space?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, it would be safe and yes, it will free up some space.
I concure with Paulmacd, this is ok and will not cause you any issues, and yes would free space up on your system/boot drive..
