Page file on multiple drives?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Any point? Does it work?

I saw in the page file options you can keep a PF on multiple drives, so I allocated space on both my 500Gbs as PF space and cut the PF on my SSD from 16Gb to 1.

Was there actually any point in doing so? Will it help my SSD last longer?

Obviously this guy wasn't using SSD's, but this may prove to be an interesting tidbit:

Hope it helps.

Oh cool. So I can spread it thin across all my greens and get some decent-ish performance without using too much space on each. I'll just take it off my SSD altogether, then.

Lol with that much ram I wouldn't bother with more than 1GB page file.

Maybe 2-3GB if you really max out your ram usage often.

Yep. Leave it off the SSD = profit, and better performance on the six greens you've got there.

It could help too to create tiny partitions at the beginning of each drive just for the page files. It'd cut down on seek times.
