Disabling the page file

Recommended Posts

 I have systems with 16gb and 32gb of RAM.  I really don't see the need for the page file.  I've not had issues without it.

Recommend  with an SSD that you change the size to 1GB min/max* otherwise you disable your system from being able to log certain kinds of errors.
*and/or if you have an HD move it to there.

You system might operate fine with 0 page space but if, for example, you're having shutdown errors you'd never know until something more serious starts occurring.

No issues.  I've had it disabled on my 32gb system for over a year.

Likewise.  My 32 GB system had it off for 4 years, and then somehow after I upgraded my SSD, reinstated it for some reason and it seemed to cause me problems.  I turned it back off and everything is fine again.

I also have a Gadget that shows me how all my Drives & RAM usage and free space, and if any information is moving up or down on them.  If the pagefiles system was needed, it would first be writing to my free RAM which never goes above 4 or 5 GB, ever.  The monitor gadget is nice and I do keep an eye on it.

If I am using Cakewalk DAW and see the RAM usage start moving toward 30 GB, then I might be inclined to turn the Pagefile back on, but until then...

 I may go back to it. I guess you can run it on a different drive so it saves on the writes to a SSD.

I use my old SSD as a Page File Drive.
