This area has many chasing an non-existant payoff. Read the Optimizing Articles at http://www.aumha.org/articles.htm
"Let Windows manage it."
Payoff in performance is not in this one.
I read with interest the recent Weekend Project article: "Get your hard Drive back in the fast lane. My question is about "Step 6: For Extra Credit" in the article. Why does Windows ignore my virtual memory (VM) Custom Paging File Size Allocation?(I set both Initial & Maximum Size to 3000 MB--the recommended 3 times RAM, which is 1 GB.) The problem is at the bottom if the VM window,? Total paging file size for all drives" it shows 1) Recommended = 1534 MB and 2) Currently allocated = 1534 MB. It seems to be ignoring my 3000 MB settings.
What am I doing wrong?
