    You can't move pagefile.sys since it's being used by the system. In order to move the pagefile to the second hard drive, right click My Computer and click Properties.
    Click the Advanced tab, and then under Performance, click Settings. Click the Advanced tab, and then under Virtual memory, click Change.

    You will need to reboot after you move the location, so that the pagefile can be relocated.
