Beating a Dead Horse
I want to go over the Windows Swap File (one more time). I'm now running Windows 7 64 bit, with 24GB of RAM. I run a memory usage app, and it consistantly shows I never really use even HALF of my physical memory. Yet, everything I can find says to leave the page file anywhere from 1 to 3 times system memory. So far I've left Windows to do it, and it keeps it at 25GB. Why?? What about the option of making 10-12GB into a RAM drive, and putting the swap file on it? No, I'm not having performance issues, I'm just curious and I can never leave well enough alone.
There's no place like 127.0.0.1
