What if you've got 1 Gig of memory then? Best let Windows control it for a while and check to determinze the maximum size. Then set that as your minimum and set your maximum a fair bit higher.
Even better to set this after you defragged, so the new pagefile is not fragmented. It then sometimes might get over the minimum, but th's cleared when no longer needed.

the pf shoul NOT be 1.5 ram, it should be NO LESS THEN 1.5 RAM WITH EXPANSION ENABLED...DO NOT SET THE PAGEFILE MAXIMUM AND MINIMUM TO THE SAME VALUE, IT IS COUNTR PRODUCTIVE

ya, good point, xs, as in order to place the pf on your disc, you need to move it to the associated partition, if you do partition

follow the directions in the posts above, to adjust the pagefile on each partition, dissable it on all but the partition you wnat it to be located
