ok... i hav 1gig of ram... two disk in same ide
and i decided to make a partition on the second disk for the pagefile... i set it to 2gig rather than 1.5....!
should i partition it to ntfs or fat32??
doesn't really matter much to tell the truth, as long as you got all the partitions of the same type, either fat32 or ntfs.

NTFS is actually a little slower than FAT32, plus NTFS requires about 12% overhead on the drive so if you are using 75% for the PF and then another 12% now you are up to 87% usage. NTFS's real advantage is its security features so it is really not necesary. I would and do use FAT32 for my PF partition.


so is it better set the pagefile to my second hardidsk (same cable)?
i think i will use fat32 for it...


if drive was on it's own ide it would be better.
...and if it was a RAID 0 configuration it would be even better yet.

It doesn't mean he CAN do it, he may only have 2 IDE channels, one for his cd rom and one for his hdd.

I have a RAID 0 configuration and everything the wind.
