Hi guys...i am an overclockers myself...so sorry i aint foccused and i have really little knowledge for pagefiles...hard drives etc.
I honestly dont fully understand some of your post sorry for that.
so far i can understand that i have to try a few things to check for myself what makes my rig feel more reposponsive.
Let me get into more detail:
most of the time i am web surfing running PTC to download my torrents.They do use loads of ram from what i remember.
At this moment i am only downloading one file so theres little hdd activity i guess and ram usage.
ctrl+alt+del->performance then i get the following data:
Physical mem 1037276
system cache 777...
non paged 31...
PF usage 246mb
My page file is set on my boot drive after reinstalling windows XP PRO SP1
and is 1536-3072
Seems a bit big to me...isnt it?
Should i remove my page file from this drive or set it to 1536-3072 or something else? arround 7GB used and 27.3 free on this Atlas 15K
then my other scsi drive the Atlas 10K III has no page file and 26.3GB used and 7.87free
Should i move the page file into this drive or not and how big should it be?
My last drive is the SATA DIamondmax which is always used for downloads and has 145gb used and 44GB free also has no paging file
Now you got more detail on my rig.I rarely play games nowadays...its surfing the net and dowloading with my Uni ethernet (yep its v fast) however in the future its gonna be buy buy to these downloads as i got a 56K home so more its gonna be gaming...
Sorry if were turning cyrcles and cyrcles but i am a HDD newbie.
Could you tell me how and what exactly to do then in a bit more detail if you want me to try to?
