  • Windows 2000 server pagefile

    I have tried to move the pagefile on my win 2000 server from C: to the D: partition. a new pagefile was created on D:, however the initial pagefile on the C: is still there. should i delete it manually or change the settings in the registry? Thanks

    Can you post a screenshot of what you did? I want to see if you changed the size of the file on the C Drive or just left it as it was. Don't know Win2K Server but if I had to guess I would say you need to leave a 2MB Paging File on C: and put whatever you like on D:.

    Don't forget that when you move the file from C: (full) Memory Dump is disabled. (Assuming it is the same as the other server OSes that I do know)

        You will need to set the pagefile on C to manual, max and min size 0.

        Actually, you are better with a small pagefile (2Mb) on C.

        You will also need to change the startup options to "small memory dump" on crash

          I have entered the following values (100, 200) for a test, should I click yes?

            Try it and see what happens. Personally if I was moving the Paging File to create space on the C: drive, I would make the C: drive size 2MB Min & Max. The only other reason I can think of moving a Paging File is for performance gain. This will happen if it is moved to a different physical drive and not just a different partition on the same physical drive as the C: partition.
