I don't think I'd mess with it. But, if you have 8+GB of RAM and an SSD you can completely disable it and see if you have any issues from programs. Been running without a pagefile since April of this year with no problems. | Report abuse ryno_49 November 28, 2012 4:25:58 PM When you say 8 GB of ram, do you understand that 5 GB is used with memory stick (Ready Boost)? Also since you disabled the paging file have you seen a difference in speed? That is if your running Ready Boost like me. | Report abuse J_E_D_70 CPUs Expert November 28, 2012 4:34:49 PM Since I'm running an SSD, a memory stick isn't value-added since the access and reads are faster than the USB interface. Think I'd only try turning page off with 8GB or actual RAM. If not, I'd let Windows manage the page file by itself. Not sure if there is a speed difference since I've never had the page file on with this build. | Report abuse Related ressources Questions about pagefile after ReadyBoost is installed - Forum 4GB RAM, 4GB ReadyBoost , 2 HDDs: PageFile or RAID? - Forum Technical Win7+ ReadyBoost question(s) - Forum 1 or 2 GB flash drive used for pagefile instead of the HD? - Forum 20GB SSD dedicated for readyboost ? - Forum Ask the community Publish gamerk316 CPUs Authority Windows 7 Expert November 28, 2012 6:00:58 PM There is no reason whatsoever to disable the pagefile. | Report abuse ryno_49 November 28, 2012 9:07:31 PM Best answer selected by Ryno_49. | Report abuse Proximon CPUs Authority December 21, 2012 5:15:28 AM This topic has been closed by Proximon | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs> pagefile after ReadyBoost is installed> Related ressources: ForumReadyboost SDHC or USB 2.0 Flash drive ForumSsddisk for readyboost ForumA few ReadyBoost question ForumNew SSD installed opinions please ForumLaptop with SSD and HDD.
