Simple question. I just replaced my Corsair Vengeance 8GB RAM with Vengeance 16GB. A couple hours later, I just realized my SSD space went from around 105GB to 95GB. What happened?? I haven't done any downloading or installing.
Could also be the hibernation file too.
If you don't use hibernation you can disable it completely to regain a few gig of space,
to do so run CMD as admin and type "powercfg -h off" (without quotation marks of cause).
Yea its 16360mb O.o why so large and do I need it to be that large? And hiberfil.sys is 12gb, is that too large as well? I will lower the size of the pagefile, but does that affect anything?
Speaking of hibernation, when I put my computer to sleep it can never wake up. My keyboard has led lighting. When my computer is asleep, the lighting on the keyboard is off, but it flashes when I hit a button. It's strange and I never got around to figuring out what is going on there.
Okay guys, I'm doing the same for my laptop as well. Setting my pagefile to 2048/2048 (I have 8GB ram, the pagefile was 8094mb. Do I need hyberfil.sys on a laptop? I only use sleep and never hibernate. But it is to my understanding on laptops when the battery gets low they will automatically hibernate, although mine is usually always plugged in. So if I just use sleep on my laptop, is it safe to turn hyberfil.sys off?
