I have a new Vista (Home Premium) system with 2GB RAM and two SATA II hard drives. I want to create a new partition for the page file (swap file), but I'm not sure of the best way to do it. I'd appreciate anyone's thoughts on the following:
How large should the swap file be (min=max)?
Should I split it, putting half on a clean partition on the system disk and half on a clean partition on the other disk, or should I just put the whole thing on the non-system disk?
Does the partition itself have to be significantly larger than the max page file size or how much larger should it be?
[This one's a little more tricky, but if anyone knows...if I set up a dual-boot system (with XP on the second drive) can Vista and XP share the same swap file?]
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
