  • Windows Server 2008 Core - Move Pagefile to another drive

    I found this info:

    http://blog.mpecsinc.ca/2008/04/serv...-file-wmi.html

    about changing the size of the Pagefile, but this does not seem to address moving the page file to another drive. I get the invalid query error that is mentioned on the linked page.

    Has anyone figured out a way to do this?

    Thanks,

    How about using the registry editor?

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Session Manager\Memory Management\PagingFiles"="<location> <initial size> <max size>

      Well,

      I Saw info to do that as well. When I went to look at that particular reg key, I found that it had info that did not make sense to me. I did not want to break something, so I have not changed it. Do you feel that it would be safe to change that key to your suggestion?

      Thanks for replying,

        Hold the phones!!! I just looked at the image that I posted and I just noticed that the pagefile is on the D drive, which is excatly what I wanted. How did that happen?

        Thanks for the help,

          Hi there,
          Seeing the number of referrals via this thread, I double checked the steps in the blog post.

          You will find an update at the bottom of the post that indicates the proper steps and syntax for the WMIC commands.

          Please let me know if you have any questions, and I will do what I can to answer them.

          Thanks,
