Thank you good sir.

My system shows 16GB in the page system file. How much do you think I honestly need for the page system file though and what is the best way to reduce it. Not sure what vital information may help this, but I do use thinks like Adobe and gaming, etc.

Also, there is 12GB in the hibernation file. I don't mind recovering windows to a previous state if some file became corrupt, but do I need this hibernation feature to do that?

Lastly, given my User folders are on my raided partition of two F3 drives, what do you suggest to be the best way to backup Windows (in other words, make a recovery partition)?

In the future is it just better to buy a larger SSD? Thanks.

You have 16GB RAM. Set your page file to like 100MB just in case.

Hibernation is Suspend to Hard Disk. Not necessary for desktop PC.
