    Paging File Size being set to none


    For the last several months, my PC has been suffering from various memory issues. Not returning from idle, low memory warnings, memory allocation warnings, slowness, sluggishness, etc.

    i decided to look into manually changing my paging file size and that is when i noticed that Windows is not managing the paging file size for my C drive; it is set to none.

    i found instructions on how to change this but things got more curious. The instructions say to use chkdsk Q: /R in repair mode command prompt. Oddly, rapair modes are no longer on my PC. i have tried restarting into advanced startup mode and half of what i remember used the be there, no longer is. Startup repair and system restore, for example, are no longer options.

    i am using Windows 10
    16GB of RAM
    SSD C drive
    Intel Core i7

    :)

    Page File

    Set minimum and maximum to a constant number as suggested by others, that will help reduce fragmentation on the drive coz of different page file sizing.

    Page file size?

    Deleting it is fine, but keep in mind if you delete your page file a memory dump has no where to go and will be deleted. Not a big deal but just FYI. Really there is nothing to gain by deleting a page file. Except for the physical space. Windows set your page file the same size as your ram for a reason. So suggesting you should delete it if you have 16+ Gb ram and wont need it is inaccurate. You can also recover Data on a BSOD if you have the dump file

    "Microsoft says that, when the page file is set to a system-managed size and the computer is configured for automatic memory dumps, “Windows sets the size of the paging file large enough to ensure that a kernel memory dump can be captured most of the time.” As Microsoft points out, crash dumps are an important consideration when deciding what size the page file should be. The page file must be large enough to contain the memory data."

    Paging File

    Go to the page file settings and select custom size. Make the initial size the same as the maximum size. Then your page file will never become fragmented in the first place.
