How do I reduce PageFile size and amount of Reserved MFT space in NT?
Whenever I run Diskeeper on my NT system, I notice that I have an exceptionally large amount of my hard drive allocated to PageFile, as well as a huge amount of space Reserved for MFT space.

How do I reduce both of those to more reasonable levels?

reduce pagefile:
conrol panel/system/advanced....performance settings/advanced click on "change".reset to whatever.........you can also change the drive/partition that its located.then ok apply/ok your way back out....re-boot .

You can change the amount of space NTFS reserves for the MFT by editing:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\FileSystem

Add Value name NtfsMftZoneReservation(exactly as typed) as a type REG_DWORD and set the data value. The valid range is 1 - 4.

1 - The minimum percentage will be used.
4 - The maximum percentage will be used.


hope this helps
