How much time does it take your computer to grow the page file by 25% ?

Just for fun. Let's say you have a a page file of 2 GB. If your page file grows to 2.5 GB, how much time will this take? How would you calculate the time needed? How could you test this?

It would depend on the speed of your HDD.

If you set a fixed page file size, it won't grow at all! A good rule of thumb is 2.5Xamount of RAM.

Top HDD speeds (non-steady state) can be up to 15,000 RPM.

Yes! A fixed page file! I subscribe to that philosophy. I am just discussing the proof that this is better. BTW, I first came up with this proof in 1964, and I have an idea that for almost every system, the end result is going to be just about the same. Let's see if anything has changed since then.
