  • Hi All,

    I work for an IT company, in our organisation we have up graded machines to windows 7  after updating to win 7 we are facing difficulties to provide permission on   "C" drive getting message as " An error occurred  while applying security information on to : C;\biberfile.sys  and pagefile.sys "  and files are being used 

    system configuration details  : 4 GB of RAM, 300 GB HDD and windows 7 professional 32 bit  OS 

    can any one  help us on  this..

  • Hi,

    Do you mean hiberfil.sys and pagefile.sys?

    Hiberfil.sys file is a system file that is used by Windows to support Hibernation, it is used when you hibernate the system, you can temporarily stop it by disable hibernation, run command (run as admin)

    powercfg.exe /hibernate off

    and pagefile.sys is the file used by windows to be your Page File, or your virtual memory swap. I would like to know what permissions you want to provide on "C" drive, system files are included in "C" drive, it should be very careful to change permission on it.
