My laptop has 2 physical dasd drives. The normal default for the pagefil is on the "C" drive .. I've gone into "system" several time trying to move the pf to the "E" drive.  However it just will not stay moved.. I restart the system and it does in fact show up on the "e" drive. But, when I powerdown completely and then reboot it reverts back to the "C" drive.

Any ideas ?


A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version


The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

   The pagefile.sys file is a file that Windows uses in its operation.  If you move it, Windows will just build another one and it will always be in C:\.  That is the way Windows works.

Sorry Ray, in WinXP you can relocate the pagefile.sys to any partition.
