Should i enable page file size for all drives

i pressed Automatically manage page file size for all drives but only my c drive has the option selected that says system managed for all the other drives it says none because no page file size was selected, should i add a page file size for all drives or leave it the same it is now, because i forgot what the settings were before.

  1. Only the system drive where Windows is installed (usually 'C') uses a page file, but you can choose which drive that page file is located on (The idea being that you can choose the drive which is the fastest).

    Your current settings are fine as your other drives don't need or use a page file.

    Windows can use multiple page files just fine. Best practice is to have one page file on each physical drive, assuming they're not RAID'ed. A single drive would only have one page file, not one per partition (for performance reasons). When a paging operation is needed, Windows will choose the page file on the least busy drive at that moment.
