    Hiberfill file is used to hibernate computer and if you don't do that can be removed by entering following line in Command prompt (as administrator) powercfg.exe /hibernate off
    Pagefile and swapfile are used by windows for virtual memory and size can be adjusted depending how much RAM you have.

    I canceled power & sleep in settings (i.e. never, never & high performance)
    but couldn't delete hiberfil
    tried powercfg and got an error message:
    unexpected error (0x65b) Function failed during execution
    maybe after a restart

    Only if you start from command prompt or from Run, no need from disk properties.
