Partition Problem HELP!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok i try defragging my drive to make a partition of at least 6gb for windows XP 64 bit in dual boot, but there is an unmovable file at the end and i wanna kill it! i want to install 64 bit version to get more performance from games thats all, everything else i'll do on the main OS

is there any way for me to see what that file is called? its making it so i only have 4.5gigs of unpartitioned space when i need at least 6

or can i squeeze it on there?

EDIT: added a picture of my drive map

That's your page file, just reduce it a little or move it to another partition

Go through the Start Menu, and Right Click on My Computer and select Properties.
Select the Advanced tab and then Performance Settings.
Then select the Advanced tab and then go to Change Virtual Memory and then just put this onto another partition where you have enough space.
