ok i know this has been asked to death, but i have 2 hard drives, i want to put my pagefile on the one without windows installed, when i try to move the file named pagefile.sys in C:\ it tells me NO, well it says bla bla bla windows system files bla bla, and i cant find any option in any menues to move it or change the path, so how do i go about moving it?

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.
