Re: How to make the most out of 3 hard drives and Vista?

I don't think I can properly guide you on how to get the most out of
your drives- RAID or no RAID / Smaller Partitions or Single Partition,
these are a personal decision... I personally have 3 SATA Drives and 1
IDE Drive. Eventually, I may RAID 0 a couple of small drives for
Online Games and then RAID 1 my bigger drives for critical data I can't
afford to lose. Hell, drives are so cheap today, I may an additional
drive to set RAID 5. All of them are indenpendent drives today...

Now, to determine if you set the PageFile Correctly, you just need to
browse the root of the Drive that you think you set it up on and you
will see a file named "pagefile.sys" with the file size that you
created. If it is not there, then it is most likely still on the C:\
drive. I haven't tried to move mine yet, so I am not positive if
VISTA64 requires it, but normally you need to reboot the system before
the pagefile can be moved...
