Pagefile limits?
on Mar 26, 2008 at 3:03:55 pm


so I went through all the tweaks suggested for xp. I've got a separate 80gig drive, the only drive on the primary ide channel for the pagefile. The tweaks recommend 2 X RAM. I've got 3gig of DDR dual channel ram... simple enough math. As suggested on the OS drive, I've got it set for 128-128. Then I go to custom size the dedicated pf drive to 6144. When I set it, it rejects the size, limiting me to 4096mb. Which is less than what the "recommended" offers at the bottom of the same window (4459).

...what am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any help on this one.

4096 GB is the largest size pagefile for XP, as this is the largest space that XP can address.
