    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."

    RECOMMENDED PAGE FILE SIZE FOR 4GB RAM

    Hi Glasshound. I'm Greg, an installation specialist and 9 year Windows MVP, here to help you.

    Unless you have issues which suggest otherwise, it's best to use System Managed paging file size.

    If you want to calculate it yourself then the recommended method is here:

    Remember that this will never replace a need for more physical RAM. To scan your system for possible RAM upgrades using the best tool install and run Crucial System Scanner:
