    By trying to change my page file I have ended up with two identical sized page files. The first is on my C partition with the XP files and is colored green, Unmovable file, in Defragment Analyze. The second is on my E partition with my data files and is colored blue, Contiguous file, in Defragment Analyze.

    In Windows Explorer the C pagefile.sys has the Properties: Type of file: System file, Opens with: blank. The E pagefile.sys has the Properties: Type of file: System file, Opens with: Unknown application.

    I have tried setting my page file to No paging file, reboot, defrag, reset the pagefile to System managed size, reboot, but I get the same two pagefiles back. How can I correct this?

    I fixed this myself by moving the pagefile to the E partition, reboot, defrag, moving the pagefile back to C partition, reboot.
