By using defraggler, i recently found out that the page file on my os disk is split into two parts. I wonder if this may impact system performance and if so, if there is a fix. The file is 1.5 gb.

Not sure at all...what you mean.

Are you talking physical location on the hard drive...or are you referring to two locations for "pagefile" on the hard drive when looking via Explorer?

All files...may not necessarily be in one contiguous location...that's what fragmentation is.

Right click on My Computer and go to properties
Go to the Advanced tab
Under Performance click settings button
Go to the advanced tab
Under virtual memory click the change button
Click no paging file and then the set button
Click OK and restart
This will temporarily delete the paging file
When the system is restarted repeat the process only this time click system managed size then set
This will recreate the paging file and hopefully it will be contiguous
In the beginning there was the command line.
