So since the day I got my PC(Little over a year), I've had this problem with the paging file. The paging file would constantly make my disc at 100% usage all time. Making my PC insanely slow. I found out how to fix this problem, which is disabling the paging file. But, a month ago I bought GTA 5...
I am using Windows 8.1. Recently, I tried to change the size of the paging file by setting "System Managed" option for all drives. Since it turned out to be too much more than the recommended value, I disabled the setting for all drives except the windows drive.
The problem is that all...
Is there any difference between these two settings, i feel like my computer is way faster with the second setting. THX
Lately I've been having these annoying popups telling me I'm running out of memory, but I really don't understand it. I have 32GB of RAM and I'm currently using a little less than 8GB of it.
The popups don't indicate that I'm running out of virtual memory (paging file), but I do get system events...

I followed this guide but the option is not there. I was wondering if it works for any of you because I'm thinking Microsoft removed this feature on W8.
Just noticed that on Windows 8.1 my Paging file is set to 16GB, I have this set to system managed on a separate drive. PC has 16GB of RAM and an SSD for the OS.
Seems to be quite large and recall when previously set to system manage the paging file was only about 2GB.
My son's Windows 8 laptop has 6 GB of RAM. His paging file resides entirely on the C: drive and is the "System managed size".
His paging file is set to 960MB. Doesn't that seem very low? It's even less than the recommended 4,067MB.
