I believe you have to use a 3rd party program to completely disable PF, it was posted before, gonna look for it.
BTW, why do you want PF disabled?

I noticed the same thing. I disabled it on all my drives and when I go to defrag, there's a huge chunk still "reserved system space". And taskmanager says its still in use(447MB currently and all im doing is brosing the interweb). I would like to know how to completely disable it cause I don't need it.

Well I've searched and searched and I cannot find the post
I wouldn't disable it, I get game freezes and soundloops with a couple of games if I disable PF.
