I went to 'My Computer' properties, then advanced, performace settings, advanced and set the no paging file ratio. Then pressed set and applied etc... I rebooted, checked it again and it said it was at 0 mb. All sounds good so I checked for the pagefile.sys on my hard-drive and yes I obviously made operating system files viewable and the usual ones were there but the paging file was gone.
So I have no paging file right? It's been disabled correct?
Well, I went to task manger and it says my page file usage is 512 mb (varies obviously). Then, for my physical memory it says I'm using about 400 mb. I thought it just meant that the page file is the physical memory since it's task manager, I downloaded a program called TuneUp Utilities. In this program, it has an application called Process Manager - a lot like taskmanger but with more advanced features. It gives straight out anwers. It says 33% of my RAM (physical memory) and my paging file is at 28%.
I keep checking for a pagefile.sys on my hard-drive and there isn't one and windows tells me my paging file is disabled. What is going on here? Shouldn't the task manangers show the pagefile at 0%?
Thanks, any help/knowledge is appreciated.
