You misunderstand - I meant he can put the pagefile on his mechanical HDD, or just not have a pagefile at all.
You don't need a pagefile when you've got 16GB-32GB of RAM unless you regularly run out of RAM from running virtual machines or rendering videos etc.
Right. I get that. You can put it wherever. On the other drive, "Let Windows manage..." or make it really small (1024mb min/max) and leave it on the C drive.
Either way works.
