    pagefile.sys: 20 GB - reduce?


    My pagefile.sys on an Acer Aspire E 15 (Acer E5-573) is 20 GB big. Could / should one resize it? If yes, how?

    swapfile.sys is only 16 MB big. Is it OK?

    Turn off pagefile in system advanced settings, reboot and then set pagefile to auto.

    Many thanks! Done.

    I had read that the computer is faster when the pagefile.sys size is set manually, that's why it was not set to automatic. I assume, it does not matter.
