    Anyone out there know how to change the page file to a temp drive?

    I'm using up most of my C: on some terminal servers in page files. I'd like to move it over to another drive with more space.

    Thanks,

    P.

    I'm using Win2k.

    Right-click My Computer
    Properties
    Advanced tab
    Performance Options
    Change...

    ...after you type in the new page file size (NEVER let Windows resize the pagefile for you), you have to press the "Set" button and reboot or the change won't be saved. You can delete a pagefile from a drive by changing its size to 0MB.
