    I know everyone will disagree with me but I think the best is when you configure it yourself.

    There was a comprehensive MS blog talking about memory and optimal setup for page file but it's gone and no longer online,
    You might want to search google cache or web archive to find it, the title of the blog was "Pushing the limits of Windows memory" or something like that.

    An alternative is here:
    Thanks! Will check it out!

    It entirely depends upon your machine and what you use it for so we can't tell you optimal settings. Really you need to do your own tests. With the amount of RAM you have start by disabling page file except the bare minimum for crash dumps. I bet you won't even notice any performance difference.

    Have a read. Posts #7 and #8 here:

    How Can I Determine The Location of The Page File In My Computer? - Windows 7 Forums

    In Post #8 you can see that I used to create a static page file on a RAMdisk (Windows 7)

    That was windows 7 with 4Gb RAM installed.

    On my Windows 10 Machine with 8Gb RAM I just leave it system managed and never have any issue.
