    File to be on your Second Drive . . . How to reduce the size of your Page File: Press Windows Key and type: view advanced Select View advanced system settings from the menu When the System Properties window opens, click the Settings button in the Performance
    section Navigate to the Advanced tab. From there, you’ll see the size of the paging file for all drives. To change it, click the Change button in Virtual memory section Uncheck Automatically manage paging file size for all drives Select your M drive from the
    list Select the Custom size option and set the Initial and Maximum size to 4000MB Once you’re done, click Set and OK to save changes Restart your System

    The sceenshot is correct. There is nothing wrong. This comes about as a result of an update first introduced in Windows 8.1.
    This article explains the situation for those who can understand it.
    How Control Flow Guard Drastically Caused Windows 8.1 Address Space and Behavior Changes « Alex Ionescu’s Blog

    Note that this is 2 TB of VIRTUAL address space and has no significant cost in system resources. In Windows 8.1 and later each 64 bit process has a 128 TB private virtual address space. This is up from 8 TB in previous 64 bit systems.

    Yes, I understand the concept of virtual space, we work with that a lot in the flight simulation community. I am aware that it has nothing to do with system resources.

    Thank you for the link, now that I'm aware that it's normal, all is fine!
