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?
