    64 GB ram PC page file size


    I prefer to set min and max page file sizes the same, but was wondering what to set it at with 64 GB of ram.

    you don't need page files with 64 GB unless you use all of it, in that case allow the same amount to the page file

    Some programs still write to disk regardless of ram, so a page file is good. A ram drive gets 14 GB for internet browser files. Adobe Photoshop gets 32 GB dedicated. Windows get the rest (18 GB). At least that is what I am thinking when I build the new PC.

    Not only that, the modified page writer can no longer clean up certain areas of memory if you completely disable the paging file. Best to leave it at a size large enough to capture a kernel dump if the box did crash - 1GB or so of paging file space should be sufficient to still allow capture of a crash dump without setting a dedicateddumpfile location via the registry, not mess with the memory manager's functionality, and should be unnoticeable to the system with that much memory.

Optimum page file size in Performance & Maintenance
What would be an optimum size for pagefile.sys ? I have 8 gb of ddr2 ram and the pagefile.sys is around 4.5 gb . I guess this is not necessary size. Would it be good to fix it around 1 or 2 gb ? Thanks in advance.
