Paging File size on separate SSD

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.

    Why not make it as large as possible?

    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.
