2x 40GB?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I was thinking about making 40Gb, 40GB on my 80GB drive and putting the Page file on the empty drive. I'm just wondering, does my Samsung 80GB had 2 plates? meaning each one is 40Gb's each that comes with there own heads.

I don't believe so, you could try partitioning it and using one partition as a page file, although, I have two 80gb HDD and use one as a pagefile. When I change it NOT to be, there doesn't seem to be that much difference, but I do have 2gb of memory so that might have something to do with it!

your page file is only 1.5x the amount of RAM you have, 40gb would be overkill. Also, it only really helps if you put the pagefile on a separate physical disk.
