Damned pagefile.sys - I need some help!

Hi guys!

So, I need some help. The photo below pretty much shows my problem:

<a href="http://s1341.beta.photobucket.com/user/casparolesen/media/SpacesnifferVirtualMemory_zps35f0028b.png.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1341.photobucket.com/albums/o751/casparolesen/SpacesnifferVirtualMemory_zps35f0028b.png" border="0" alt=" photo SpacesnifferVirtualMemory_zps35f0028b.png"/></a>

So, the pagefile.sys is taking up 5.5 GBs of space on my precious SSD, and I can't live with that, so therefore I removed the pagefile from my SSD and moved it over to my 1.5 TB mechanical HDD. But it's still there, and I can't find it in the $WINDOWS.~BT folder, as Spacesniffer says it is. Help! Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks!

  1. Sorry about the photo link. Here's the right link:
  2. I'm not sure that size is that unusual. I instaleld that tool you used and this is the result. I only have 500GB of storage total and between hyberfil.sys (2.9gb) and pagefile.sys (3.9gb) there is about 7gb of storage being used by these two files.
  3. That's fine and all, but the strange thing is, that I disabled the pagefile - and therefore, it shouldn't take up that much space (5,5 GB / 128 GB). It pisses me off :P
