ClearPageFileAtShutdown

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314834

Can anyone tell me if switching this on this clears all pagefile.sys files
on all drives, or just the bootdrive / drive on which my Windows XP is
installed ?

I have a fixed size 60mb pagefile on my boot-drive C:\ and system size
managed pagefile on the first drive of my 2nd hard disk.

regards, Richard

Re: ClearPageFileAtShutdown

one of the set backs
with clearing it at shutdown
is that the pc will take a longer
time to shut down.

also, i noticed you mentioned
that yours was 60 megs.

this doesn't seem to be an
appropriate size unless you
have 24 megabyte ram chips
installed in your computer.

we can review this issue further
if you are interesetd...

Re: ClearPageFileAtShutdown

Thanks for your response, though you might care to reread my OP a little
more thoroughly, ...and what Jim Eshelman has to say about optmizing XP at
aumha.org , ( i think it was aumha.org ...years ago I spotted it), e.g. set
a small fixed swapfile on the boot-drive, because XP wouldn't like there not
being one there at all, and the bigger one on the first drive of the 2nd hd.
:-)

Re: ClearPageFileAtShutdown

I've just been reading through some of your posts !
Obviously, and unfortunately, you are an amateur, and should not be giving
advice to people when you don't fully understand the ramifications of what
you are advising, and indeed the damage your advice could do to other
peoples PC's and data !!!!

I also am an amateur but, the differrence I suspect is that I've loved PC's
and love/hated Windows since they were invented !!!

Re: ClearPageFileAtShutdown

yeh, i did read your posting
regarding the multiple pagefiles
you have.

i suppose that anyone can
set the pagefile as they wish.

however, you might see a
performance improvement
by having 1 pagefile located
on the system partition. but
it can can also be placed
in another partition or hd if necessary.

if it seems confusing then
setting the pagefile (virtual memory)
to automatic mode might be
a better way to go. this option was designed
into windows by the microsoft software engineers
and they know windows from the "inside out".

that being said, it is likely that if
you have one pagefile, the kb's advice
will work.

Re: ClearPageFileAtShutdown

The WHOLE idea of having the main swapfile on the first drive of a 2nd hd,
is to achieve a possible small gain in performance.
Your suggestion of having just one, on the system drive, is the default.

Please don't try to be helpful, if simply to trying to demonstrate a
"superior" knowledge of Windows, you clearly don't have it !
I've already read through some of your replies to other OP's and quite
simply, you'd be better off keeping quiet.
i.e. people following some of your advice could end up in serious trouble.

regards, Richard
