I have 769mb of ram, what should the page file size be?
Bad ideas:Xie said:I think w/ XP though it is thought that letting XP handle this is the best method. One thing you could do though if you run more then one HD is set it on the faster of the 2 or if the same speed on the non-OS HD.
1) This does not happen, if XP handles the page file, it automatically sets its size to 1.5x's RAM and will expand if necessary.LeeJend said:Bad ideas:
1). If xp handles it,it will smear it all over your HD as it adjusts the size dynamically causing major fragementation and slow downs.
2). If you put it on a physically different HD than your operating system you will have to wait a couple seconds for the 2nd HD to spin up out of power down mode every time you need to access the pagefile.
