  1. How to stop Windows from creating hiberfil.sys


    I tried deleting it from cmd prompt and also downloaded Unlocker for the sole purpose of getting rid of it. My laptop is always plugged in, why are you forcing it to switch off randomly when I'm away from my laptop? Windows 10 recently had to rest it. Did not have hibernation problems before reset.

    Deleting Hiberfil & Pagefile

    Howdy,

    So I have a 60gb SSD with Windows 7 and Office on it (all specs are listed <--- under my username). I have a 12gb pagefile and a 9gb hiberfil, is it possible to delete those or make it so that hiberfil at the very least is no longer created? I just want a little free space on there for future use.

    Thoughts?

    Deleting Hiberfil & Pagefile

    Pagefile size depends on RAM, just find optimal value and stick to that.

    If you use SSD and want more free space then disable System Restore. It is far more efficient than disabling hiberfil

    After disabling hibernation hiberfil.sys gets deleted automatically.

  4. How to stop Windows from creating hiberfil.sys

    Help, cant create windows image

    Hello there, @fullinfusion!

    It seems like some sort of an OS confusion has happened with your secondary WD Black and I'm sorry to hear about that. *Frown How to stop Windows from creating hiberfil.sys :(
    Maybe re-formatting it would help indeed as the community already mentioned. I'd suggest to take a look at this step-by-step how to partition and format an HDD: http://products.wdc.com/support/kb.ashx?id=PYCoid
    Keep in mind that this will wipe clean the drive, so you should backup all important data from the drive somewhere else.
    I noticed from the screenshots that your HDD appears as Disk 0, this means that it's plugged in the primary SATA port where the SSD (as an OS drive) should be. Actually it is possible that because of this Windows cannot create the image there. Swap the ports of the SSD and the HDD, this might help as well.

    Keep me posted. Hope this helped! *Smile How to stop Windows from creating hiberfil.sys :)
