The OS and programs don't care where the pagefile is, just that there is one.

You may also want to disable hiberantion:
Type "powercfg.exe -h off" at the command line with out the quotes. You will need to delete the hyberfil.sys on c: manually.
Both the restore points and hiberfile.sys are automatically deleted.

@Theory: I've been incorrectly preaching for the past several months that even if you are overkill on installed memory, then you should still have a Paging File. However, I've since learned that this is false (unless it is not overkill for you). Thanks to this excellent post made by someone named "Z06ssd", I hesitantly disabled my Paging File four days ago and I have not had a single problem yet. Crysis 2 with DX11 and the High Res Textures is supposed to need up to 8GB of memory (recommended?), but I haven't had any issues whatsoever.

So my personal conclusion is that if you have 8GB and if you regularly use like more than 85% of it, then you might benefit from a Paging File. However, if you're like me and you would be fine with just 2 or 4 GB (seriously) even though you have 8GB installed, then a Paging File truly is absolutely unnecessary.

When I went to disable it, I got a generic caution from Windows 7 which only said that if I disable it, then I would no longer be able to see the Memory Dump log should I ever need it (or something to that effect). So I said, "lol I don't care, and I never have. Disabled!" Although, I was still hesitant.

So my personal recommendation to you is to either completely disable it, or at least keep a small one on the SSD. After all, the SSD is faster.
It's a computer!

The "Windows" folder tends to expand to around 15GB for me before it finally stops, could be that?
