I have problem in paging file setting in Windows 2003 Serve. 8GB Ram installed in the server and 6 GB paging file configured in the D-drive.
There is no Paging file configured in the system drive but pagefile.sys occupied about 8GB
Steps tried to resolve this issue:-
- Rebooted the server and checked still unused paging file in system drive
- Tried to split the Paging system drive 2GB and D- drive 4 GB after rebooted the server and found that Total paging file size is 2 GB ( It’s taking only system drive value)
- I don’t have more space in system drive, hence 6 GB paging file configured in D- drive. Still those 8 GB unused pagings file there in the system drive.
Need your help to resolve this case.

Sridharan you have to have paging file on system Drive if it is full you have run the cleanup, you can't move the default page to a non system drive location because Storing the page file on a different partition of the same drive as Windows increases the hard drive seek times and will reduce system performanc.
