    Paging Files/VM


    Okay, so here I am playing my world of warship game and notice that sometimes my fps drops or the computers starts to slow things down on me. So I looked at my drive that the game is on (as I have 2 M.2 and 3 SSD) and notice that it's taking it over 2 ms to read or write. So I figure the game is asking for something and the drive is taking a long time to give it to the game. So I started to research it and wonder if I do something with the Windows paging system or what. But then I started to read about Virtual Machines and Virtual Drives. I have 32gb of physical ram on my rig. They say that with that much Ram, I should turn off Paging.
    So how can I lower the read/write cycles it takes for the game to call what ever it's calling and load it in?

    :)

    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.

    I would never turn off your page file. Ever. EVER! I put my page file on a separate partition in the middle of the HD, so it is about 2% faster! If you have to mess with your page file, do what I did.

    Paging File

    Diskeeper does this (it's not free also), or
    disable page file, restart computer, delete C:\pagefile.sys, defragment drive C:, enable page file again.
