Hi,

Hope you can help.

I'm sure you've heard this a million times before...

I have 2.00 GB of RAM on my PC, does the screenshot I have attached look correct with regards the Virtual Memory settings for my machine?

I always thought that the initial and maximum settings should be the same?

Thanks,

C h r e d g e

the Maximum size is 1.5 times the current allocated ram which in your case is 4072 mb's so yes it appears to be correct. 6070 / 4072 = 1.49 (approx 1.5)

"For best performance, do not set the initial size to less than the minimum recommended size under Total paging file size for all drives. The recommended size is equivalent to 1.5 times the amount of RAM on your system. Usually, you should leave the paging file at its recommended size, although you might increase its size if you routinely use programs that require a lot of memory."

Select "System managed size" and then click "Set".

Manually setting the minimum and maximum sizes hasn't been necessary since the Windows 95/98/ME days.

I generally use the `System Managed` option and to date, have never had a problem with it.
