pagefile is extremely large
Posted on 2015-02-09
Hello, on one of my clients servers I noticed that the C: partition was down to 6GB of free space. Upon taking a closer look, I noticed that the system managed pagefile had grown to 25GB in size. When I look at the settings in the Virtual Memory windows - the recommend size is 4600MB. So I do not know why it is allocating 25GB of space? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Note: I set the setting to none, rebooted - it was gone. Set it back to system managed, rebooted - it is back a 25GB now. Server 2012 Essentials. 8GB of RAM.
