    What's the opinion these days on moving the pagefile to a second physical disk?

    second disc is always better then the os disc if it's not being hit as much, if it's always being, for instance if it's a network server everyone is accessing then maybe not but usually the os hardrive is the last disc to put the pf

    don't forget, if you want to collect dumps then leave a small pagefile in the c partition even if you put the larger pagefile on your secondary disc

    also make sure the disc you set your pagefile is not configured to spin down if unused, however it's going to be used if the pagefile is on it but still

    how r u doing?

    I knew you'd come through!

    Doing well. Just finished a new build. Newly unemployed and enjoying some well deserved time off!
