    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.
