Hey everyone, interesting question I can't find in help menu's or other websites so I thought I'd try here. What is pagefile.sys for? Is it a swap file? And how do I change it's default drive localtion? Here's my system. C:\ (Fat16) for Dos 6.22 and Windows 3.11) - Don't ask D:\ (Fat32) PCI IDE Device to store files, mainly backups E:\ (NTFS5) Where my XP installation is - F and G are DVD and CDRW drives respectively. My issue is, I don't want most anything that has to do with XP on my Fat16 Drive. Now I understand NTDLR boot.ini and a few other files have to stay, it's that whole "MS must control my hard drive" matra schiznit and being the first partition, if XP doesn't have control over it it has a fit. I just want to change the default drive settings AWAY from this drive so it can remain independant in a way. Any helpers out there on this one?
