It's a tutorial demonstrating how to increase the available swap memory on your windows machine so that you can run RAM hungry programs such as PhotoShop.

(Didn't you look at the pictures?!? :huh:)

Of course, just like the other post here:
(though actually MUCH LESS than that) :huh:
the post lacks ANY background and is mostly senseless.

There have been written hundreds or maybe thousands of pages about Swap memory.

A large part of them are unbelieveably inaccurate, mainly when they give you a "fixed" multiplying factor for size as calculated from physical RAM, typically:


There are two main "schools of thought" on this:
1) let Windows manage swap files, it's better
2) tweak your swap settings as per "this" or "that" guide (using fixed parameters)

As often happens :huh: I am of a third opinion:
1) tweak your swap
2) do it accordingly to your particular, unique, peculiar and custom needs

1) have swap on a separate partition on a second drive (NOT the one where the System partition is)
2) set a fixed size for it
3) x3 is totally absurd if you have an amount of RAM appropriate for the OS you are running, unless you use heavy graphical programs, say Photoshop with really big images and LOTS of layers, in which case your only way out is to add more RAM, and if not enough, add some more.
4) running XP with 256 Mb of RAM is something similar to suicide
5) 512 Mb with Win2K and factor x1.5 is more than enough
6) 1024 Mb with XP and factor x1 or x1.5 is more than enough
7) if you access swap file frequently, add more RAM

it is the simple fact that a steady page file is used more rapidly by the system than an expanding page file. The tutorial simply suggest that the upper & the lower page file size to be the same. Old tricks.
