windows xp virtual memory
Posted on 2011-09-03
back in the day, i remember hearing that if you put the virtual memory of winXP on a seperate hard drive ( so the system disk is on IDE1, and the disk with the virtual memory is on IDE2 ) then you will see a performance increase.
i have tried this and it did seem to work. however as the drive aged i think it made things worse - or maybe the disk just needed formatting - but anyhow, it got me thinking. what if you could make windows virtual memory only exist in the actual memory?
so in any flavor of windows, is there a way to force virtual memory to just run in actual memory and NOT on the hard drive?
