I read a tip in PCworld about virtual memory that said if I could isolate my swap file, virtual memory would/could work faster. OK, I've got room, so how do I do that? Isolate:confused: , I mean.

Isolate swap file, means to move it to a different hard drive from Windows, so it does not compete for hard drive resources. But on today's faster PCs it does not really help, so it is not worth doing.

I agree with Dan. If you have sufficient memory, you won't notice any difference moving the paging file, since it's not all that active.
