I am running 7 Pro and when I install a drive on my system, SATA, 7 puts a new pagefile.sys on the drive and I then can't format it even using disk management. What am I missing??? I am always busy fixing other folks computers so I neglect my own system sometimes. :huh:

You can turn off the pagefile for any of the drives you have installed.

Hit the following keyboard combination: Windows Logo Key + R > then type sysdm.cpl > Advanced tab > Performance > Settings > Advanced tab > Virtual memory > Change

Here you can set the pagefile(s) to be managed automatically, managed manually, or gone altogether (on any and all drives). :huh:
