We have a corrupt page file and need to recreate it.

What is the process to do this? Do you simply delete the
pagefile and then reboot and a new pagefile gets
automatically recreated?

Thanks!

What leads you to this thought? You can't delete it while the OS is running.

Cince it is locked while the server is running deleting wouldn't be that
easy....

Try:
[Start] Configuration -> System -> System Properties -> Extended -> Button
[...options]
(sorry, german version ;)  )
That's where you can modify the swap file(s).
Try to create a second one on an other volume, deleting the first (currupt)
one.
Then move back the swap file to its original volume...
