I'll even say "very probably." As I said before, I don't know of any specific problems this would cause. You are still using virtual memory. Right on it and select Modify.

What is the aim of modified GR theories? I've also done the change the pagefile location to a different drive routine. But not via the IDE or SCSI connector, because there's no way to tell the drive to position there. And, of course, I only do this because it's my station, on which I aim to very tightly control what happens.So there...

Well perhaps C was getting full, or he wanted it on another drive that was only going to used for the page file and long term storage, thus increasing his page well...if I'm right, my lack of short term memory about the install led to the rest.

Windows uses this file as extra ram. Now all that said... And if they DO have physical access and you aren't using NTFS or equivalent-strength encryption on all your data, your "My documents" folder, etc., clearing the pagefile won't do you any news Do you know how to use the Microsoft symbol server?

I have a Gig of RAM and it wants to take 1.5 Gigs of my boot drive. Believe it or not, the OS designers really do know what they're doing... If no one has physical access to your machine, you don't need to clear the pagefile.

If you think you have a similar problem, please first read this topic, and then begin your own, new thread.

I am very sorry for the delay in responding, but as you can see we are at the moment being flooded with logs which, when paired with the never-ending shortage of However, several versions of Windows (and other OS') are available that had support for Physical Address Extensions This was a CPU extension on 32bit processors that allowed utilising more than 4GB

But, of course, you do say there is "-no-" way to control it which would imply you cannot add more memory to your computer.quote:It's basically making a choice between 95% performance They haven't changed it. Ditto for chemistry.Now I can add windows users and driver developers to that list.----Any chance someone could answer the first poster's question though? All in all, PAE is a cumbersome mechanism with limitations.
