I had a question, I already closed one thread but had one more question.
If you get another hard drive cause yours is almost full and there fore messing with the virutal.memory. If you get an external harddrive is it better to move the pagefile to the new hard drive which is what I was going to do change the drive for the virtual memory, then I got thinking, in case you didn't use the external drive all the time hooked up for whatever reason they you wouldn't have a pagefile on the old one does that make sense? I thought maybe it would be better just to move a bunch of pics and music to the extenal drive and leave the virtual memory (pagefile) where it is on the old drive, or would it make any difference??
You want the pagefile on a fairly fast and accessible area. That generally would not be an external hard drive, the interface to an external drive is generally much slower than the IDE or SATA interface.
I think what I will do is transfer all the pics and music and a few other things to the external drive and then and time I want to save pics or music use the external drive, that should give me alot of space back just by transferring the pics and music off the original hard drive and then leave the pagefile on the original drive and use it as usual but just keep putting files that are just going to be saved on the external drive, that should work pretty good shouldn't it?
