I found a link concerning the moving of the page file to a seperate partition other than that of the operating system: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q314482 I'm just wondering how this should be applied in my system. Having partitioned my 120 hard drives as follows: c: 6G for the operating system, XP office d: 20 G for games,photoshop and other applications G: 88G for movies, pictures, music According to the article, I should create a partition on D then? and set it to the recommended settings that XP shows you in the page filing area? I'm a little confused about this article. At this point I have NO page filing but I don't think it's a healthy measure to maintain.
