    So i have problem with my disk usage /cpu andd memory usuage. So i was wondering what should i set my paging file size. It has 400000 mb available but my Ram is only 6GB. And the stuff i read to put my paging is the amount of 6gb in mb as initial size and max size is double but what with all the extra mb available then?
    Sorry for bad grammar. hope you can help me what i should put the size of my paging thanks!

    A paging file is like making fake memory on your hard drive or ssd. It adds to how much you have and can be slower than real ram or about the same if its on a ssd.

    You don't really need a paging file unless you are low on memory
    It uses space on your hard drive, so sometimes you do not want a paging file

    400 GB dedicated to page file? Wowza....
    Go ahead and turn that down to about 10 and save yourself some harddrive space.

    And no Monsoon, RAM is orders of magnitude quicker than SSDs.
