I have a spare SSD that I want to use as a paging file. A few questions:
Does it matter if some drives don't have a paging file?
Does performance increase if the paging file isn't on C drive?
Should I use the entire 30gb size of the SSD for the paging file or a smaller size?
I tried running the computer without any paging file (I'm using only 2gb of 800mhz DDR-2 ram) and don't notice any difference. What is a good test for the need for a paging file?

paging size is best to keep the double of your ram u have 2gb ram page file size should be 4096mb not more.
its best to set page file on system hard drive to avoid corruption.

because its a waste it will just hold up the space but will use only double of the ram size however you upgrade your ram than u should increase paging size too.
