    How to set the pagefile to another drive in Windows 8?

    Just came to know that the paging which is done in Windows 8 will take some space to store things and right now itís been set in C drive by default. Is it possible for me to change it to another drive? If so what steps I should follow for it? Can someone guide me with the fix for the same? Thanks.

    Dear Friend ..


    Follow the below steps carefully

    Go to the Computer Properties

    From there you need to Select the ADVANCED TAB





    Click Settings under the Performance area

    Change to the Advanced tab again

    In the Virual Memory hit the CHANGE option

    Un select the " Automatically managed page-file for all Drives "


    Say No paging file there

    From the Virtual memory you need to select the PAGE FILE

    Then tick " System managed Size "

    Finally Click OK



    VERY GOOD LUCK

    Hi,
    friend

    The page file, also known as the swap file, pagefile, or paging file, is a file on your hard drive. Itís located at C:\pagefile.sys by default.
    firstly check your ram capacity and you can go to direct c drive and store fill his folder because Windows automatically manages the page fileís settings for you. However, if you want to adjust your page file settings, you can do so from the Advanced System Settings window.

    Thank you
    all the best/////

    This issue might have already been fixed if you have the latest version of Firefox running in your system. If not try to upgrade it after doing a restart. Now to fix this present issue just follow the below mentioned steps in your Windows 8 PC,

    STEP 1: Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete to open up the Task Manager.

    STEP 2: Select the Background process tab -> just type letter “f” which shows all the process name starting with f -> Locate Firefox.exe.

    STEP 3: Right click on the process -> Select End process.

    STEP 4: Now try to open up the Firefox browser which should work fine without any issues.
