I have two hard drives. One with my Os and the other is empty. Both are 8oGb drives. I have a 1.5 gb pageing file on my OS drive. I have read that if you shift your paging file to another drive you will get better performance. Is it true? Is so, then how can i change the location of my pagefile.

hey mridang_agarwal,

some people would swear that putting your pagefile on another(physical) drive would really speed up your computer...not sure myself if there's much of a difference. but if you wanted to, right-click on My Computer--Properties--Advanced Tab. Click the first Settings button(Performance groupbox)--then click on the Advanced tab. There you can change which drive to place your paging file into, as well as how much space you want to allocate for it...I recommend setting it 'System Managed' or else 1.5 times your physical memory(RAM) size.

hope this helps! :whistling:
