If I remember correctly, RAM+10 is the minimum for a crash dump file to be generated - and that has to be on the C: drive.  Otherwise, it doesn't HAVE to be RAM or RAM + 10.  The guideline is generally RAM x1.5 as I stated earlier.  There can be instances where you want more or less.  You don't want SQL or Exchange using pagefiles - they need FAST RAM, not slow pagefiles.  Give them sufficient RAM!

If you're not using System Managed (which I don't like), you will generally set the pagefile to 1.5x RAM.

Like Lee said, This is the Maximum, but you can always set limit to page file for yourself.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Page file is growing depend of application design and memory information traffic.

I have SQL server with 32GB RAM and it's using 30GB RAM but only 7GB page file.

Everything is dependable.

If you don;t want your pagefile grow you can limit it in system properties.

Is it set to be System Managed or User Managed?  Is there a pagefile on more than one drive?

Generally, I wouldn't be worried about systems with Pagefiles set to RAM... I personally *IF I NOTICED IT* would likely increase it to 1.5x RAM.

What's the fascination with the pagefile and related settings?  Are you having problems you think are related?
