I've been trying all night to change the swap file to another drive ... but can't. Windows says the PC must be rebooted, but after the reboot it says the swap file (ie page file) is still on C:. Even rebooted to Safe mode and tried to make the change - same result. (To get to the change area ... Ctl Panel ->system ->advanced -> performance settings -> virtual mem ->change. Tried using System Managed and Custom ... was afraid to set 'No Page File')
Searched in Internet ... various articles all said the same thing (to do it the way I tried). Does this mean my system is screwed up?
As I said, I'll reinstall pgms to another drive .. should have done that long ago anyway.
Am trying NOT to get in position that I have to reformat and reinstall XP again (suspect my backup will just return my PC to where it is now ... lots of work for nothing).
Thanks for the help !!
