Can too low of a pagefile setting cause games to crash? I was getting weird memory crashes from BF4 and Thief and looked at Afterburner and saw that my pagefile usage was way passed maxed out. I'm sure AB doesn't give accurate readings, but I set my pagefile to system allocate and it seemed to help some.
Now, this could have also been due to the memory leaks that were going on with the AMD beta drivers but I'm not sure.
Anyway, did you move all of your user folders over to the HDD (downloads, documents, etc)?
I dont have page file for about 3 years now.I did everything with my PC,play games ,do some picture editing with photoshop,editing video with Windows movie maker,editing music with Sony forge,browsing etc and i never had one crash .If you think on that Afterburner from MSI ,that is deffinitly not perfect software.Software from hardware manufacturers tend to crash more often then software from small companies like Piriform(CCleaner).I really don't know why hardware manufacturers cant make normal software,but they cant!

I did what Sean said and I now have 207 Gb free instead of 178Gb
What does setting page file to 1Gb do exactly?
You only need to disable restore point,hibernation file,indexing and page file.Of course if you have crashing after disabling page file you will enable it but only 1GB size.
BUT,if you reallocated everything to your HDD then why you use SSD in first place.Man fill your SSD to 75% and enjoy.HDD are only for storage and back up and that will to change very soon.Edited by Unit Igor - 4/11/14 at 1:16am
