How many memory I have in my system to disable the paging file in Windows 7?
i have 6GB it works without problems
I have 4gigs on mine,would that work?
I have 4 GB, and put it on the second partition of the first drive ... no problems
Why do you want to disable the pagefile?
If you got boatloads of RAM, then Windows will use that RAM as much as possible regardless of you having a pagefile or not.
I want to disable it for those who know how to earn more in performance and disk space (RAM is cheap)
I have it "off" to save disk space.
Some apps want the paging file regardless of how much RAM you have. Also, most apps start off demanding much more RAM than what they actually use. Then, if you have a lot of apps running, 4GB may not seem like a lot. So keep the paging file.
No that is not true! That was true maybe 5 years back but now I do not know any app that requires a paging file!
I have mine disable both since the days of XP, Vista, and now 7 with ZERO problems.
Mind you, I only have 4 GB of RAM!
I guess the proof of the pudding is in the eating, so whatever works. But remember you can have bad programs leaking memory all the time. Also, no page file means no memory dumps will be generated on BSOD.
photoshop.... you NEED a pagefile from the first version to CS4 (didn't test it with CS5 )
NEGATIVE, tested on CD 2 and CD 5, no need for a pagefile! Dunno about CS4
i have no pagefile becorse i use an SSD for system (windows 7 x64)
LOL, never a bsod.....JK but I have the dumps turned off because I've never been able to decipher them.
