Hi, I have a quick question. Will i benefit much if i partition my hdd and use that partition for pagrfiling or could I make virtual drive for that pagefile? I'm more curious as to how to do it rather than, if its worth it. I have 500GB HDD 4GB RAM i5 processor laptop. Could anyone please give me a quick how to guide. Im studying CompTIA A+ and its coming up. Thanks.
Sorry if this is in the wrong place!

NO, to gain the increase in speed, it MUST be a separate hard drive not a partition.
The heads still would have to travel to the other partition every time.
The movement of the heads is where the speed is gained.
