I have attempted to place my page file to an external disk via USB > I:, on my Win 7 HP system as I had on my old Vista HP system, to assist in performance.
After setting no (zero size) pf on C: going through the motions on re-start I get a message indicating that windows has by default created a pf on C:, (I take it this is for memory dump purposes) & on checking the external disk no pf was created although in advanced settings dialogue box a “system managed” text is indicated against drive I:, the funny thing is on C: the page file size was exactly the same prior to change even though no page file is indicated for C: in the dialogue box.
I tried again leaving a 200mb fixed sized pf for the memory dump on C: but got exactly the same response, system managed pf on I: where no pf exists on the drive.
Has anyone experienced & resolved a similar problem with their own system?
