For the life of me, I can't move the pagefile on windows 7 HP 32 bit.  I have unchecked "Automatically manage pagefile" I told one one on c to have "No pagefile" and the one on D to both "Allow system to manage pagefile" and set the min and max to 1500 mb to try both settings.  Windows always creates a "Tempory paging file" on reboot.. On c.  And when i go back into the settings, it tells me the size of pagefiles on all frives is just over 700 MB..  The size of the temp pagefile I created.  I THINK that may be because I am putting the pagefile on a SD card (Dispite the fact no one will listen, it IS the best case in this circumstance.  Don't really wanna go over it) and the drivers don't load.. But why when I create a 16 MB pagefile on C, and a 1.5 GB on D, does it show the total pagefile for all drives at 16 MB?  Windows should have loaded the drivers by then and decided to use both drives, should it not have?

see also the comments below the main article; there are helpful hints on how to do this as well.

 

There are other articles, however, they're not loading for me right now.

Thank you so much for the information on not moving or moving my page file, even though I clearly stated that the D drive (memory card) IS in fact the best place for it, and I don't want to get into it.  I am sure that information you provided help most people be able to do what I have clearly explained I need to do, but the location of the information on how to do it seems to elude me.  I am glad I could help you get your post count up by providing such important information!

 

Now that being said, can anyone actually help me?

Shadow-Wizard, I thought a few of the comments gave solutions for what you want:  to successfully set up pagefile[s] the way you want.  And, at least one or two comments agreed with your why to move said pagefile.

 

And, this poster agrees with you, and provided his solution:
