Separate partition for swap file
Hello,

I have Vista Home Premium 64 bit on a Raid0 config with 4Gb RAM.
Does it make sense to create a separate partition (~5Gb) only for the
swap file and set the swap file size to fix 4Gb?

Will be in this case less disk fragmentation issues?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Separate partition for swap file
Been known as the pagefile since Win98, but the only time there is an
advantage is when you try to shrink the Vista partition. Then it could be a
positive. As to your question Peter is correct.
