    Should I have page filing enabled on partitions that do not include an OS on them? - Will it make a difference?

    You should put at least a 50MB page file on your OS partition and anything else on other partitions. It will allow for faster access of the page file because it will probably read from a different platter than your OS is on. It would be better to have a 50MB page file on your OS drive and put another page file on a seperate physical drive all together.

    only if the other partition is actually a separate physical drive, putting the pagefile on a separate partition of the same drive will slow the computer down
