Lenovo Thinkpad T430s laptop.
I have 12gig RAM. It used to be 4gig and 8gig was the only size Crucial had.

When I partitioned the drive ages ago I never thought of what impact RAM increase will have on drive use :(
I don't ever hibernate. I do use sleep/standby a lot.

In Windows 10 (clean install), page file is 2gig and hiberfil file is 5gig, no issue here. I read someplace that in Win10 hibernation needs to be on for fast boot to work, and that it only contains system drivers, which, I suppose is the reason for its reasonable size.

But in Windows 7 (dirty OEM install), page file takes out 12gig and hiberfil is 9gig, enormous! Leaving me with only 10gig free :(
I can't even find the switch to turn off hibernation in Windows 7 like it was possible to do in XP.

Should I post this in Windows 7 section since that's what's bugging me?

To turn off Hibernation in Windows 7, open a Command Prompt as an Administrator and type powercfg.exe -h off and hit Enter.
