So I just installed Win7 on my ssd. I went to the paging file tab and turned off paging file for my os partition and made a new partition for paging file only. When I restarted and checked to make sure everything was in working order, it said total paging files for all drives 200MB. I set the max paging file to 6GB and I checked to see if my relocation of it was in the volume I wanted and it was still there 6GB but when I look at the previous window it still says 200MB for all drives?? Dont know what Im doing wrong.
Also I know that with an ssd I dont need paging files but I also have a HD for storage so it was mainly for that.
3-4GB is enough for the most (98%) users, if u have at least 6GB and more...
If W7 needs to page and u don't have enough, it will increase it by itself : )
