Hello again,
On a different subject, I'm wondering what's the best paging size for SSD that resides OS. I have 40 GB of RAM (2x4 and 2x16). Plus I have four HDDs (secondary) if I need to set paging there too?

Right now, Windows said it is managing 5888 MB on my SSD. Needs to change that?

Thanks again, Tom

What size is the SSD?

If that amount of page file is impinging on the actual drive space, reduce it.
I have 32GB RAM, and have had the pagefile set to 1GB min/max for years. Zero issues.
Otherwise, leave it as windows thinks it should.

And no, you do NOT need or want any pagefile on the HDD(s).

SSD is 1 TB.
Then you're not space limited.

Leave it as is.
Or reduce it.
You'll see zero difference either way.

Just don't turn it off completely.


I originally lowered the amount when I had 16GB RAM and a 120GB SSD.
Pagefile sucking up 10-15GB RAM was unacceptable with that size SSD, so I turned it down to 1GB min/max.
Moving up to a 500GB SSD and 32GB RAM, I saw no need to change that pagefile size. Still 1GB min/max.
