    Hello @NTN,



    I did NOT know that you had downloaded the program as per the reasons given in Post #1.

    Anyway, I have just checked the Script, and run another test, and mine does NOT change the Pagefile parameters.

    The Script ONLY uses the commands . . .

    Code:
    
    Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileUsage
    Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileSetting
    Get-wmiObject Win32_PageFileUsage

    . . . which ONLY extracts information, they do NOT change ANYTHING.
    No problem of course.

    @Berton, @FreeBooter, @zebal, @OldGuyFromCdn, @Anak

    As mentioned above, @NTN has had a problem with the Pagefile parameters being changed possibly due to running the program. As I have only used the following commands to extract the Pagefile data, I wonder if any of you have also noticed this behaviour/change please ?

    Code:
    
    Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileUsage
    Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileSetting
    Get-wmiObject Win32_PageFileUsage

    I have spent over two hours on this so far and I just can NOT find an answer for it, hence the request.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, I have not noticed any changes, but then the pagefile setting has become a moot point for me, I'll bet I haven't touched that setting for oh, 20years.

    This, is just a random thought. . . As your .bat reads the pagefile info then releases the file Windows is interpreting the release as a random addition to the file?

    As @cereberus; has stated, that style of memory management has become obsolete. I have experimented with the pagefile settings when machines only had 2 to 4MB of ram but again, that was "back in the day" so, with not noticing any improvement I have left that setting alone.

    jfi: I just set up Custom Managed Pagefiles on 5 Drives and their settings haven't changed after running the script.
    Code:
     Name            Initial Size Maximum Size
     ----            ------------ ------------
     c:\pagefile.sys 8,192 MB     10,240 MB
     d:\pagefile.sys 2,048 MB     10,240 MB
     l:\pagefile.sys 2,048 MB     8,192 MB
     t:\pagefile.sys 3,072 MB     10,240 MB
     u:\pagefile.sys 4,096 MB     4,096 MB
    
     --- Pagefile(s) - Locations [5] - Sorted by [Name] ---
    
     c:\pagefile.sys - Automatic Managed Pagefile: False [Custom Managed]
     d:\pagefile.sys - Automatic Managed Pagefile: False [Custom Managed]
     l:\pagefile.sys - Automatic Managed Pagefile: False [Custom Managed]
     t:\pagefile.sys - Automatic Managed Pagefile: False [Custom Managed]
     u:\pagefile.sys - Automatic Managed Pagefile: False [Custom Managed]
    I'll leave them there for the time being in case further testing is required (although, the codelets used are simply "GETting" the information from the System and echoing the same to console in a simplified format).

    Thanks for the feedback.

    It is ONLY extracting [ replicating / echoing ] the data that is there and NOT actually interacting with it.

    That is extremely useful indeed, thank you for testing and providing feedback.

    I haven't seen any change you could also check for pagefile size with following command.

    Code:
    Systeminfo  | Find "Total Physical Memory:"

    It is NOT the integrity of the output data that is in question. @NTN has stated that the program could have possibly changed the Pagefile parameters, which appears at present to ONLY be affecting him. This is strange as the Get commands only extract data and do NOT change / amend data in the format that I have used.

    None of those commands will change pagefile settings.

    The output of those commands confusing which one of them shows size of the pagefile?

    Code:
    PS C:\Users\FreeBooter> Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileSetting
    
    MaximumSize Name            Caption
    ----------- ----            -------
              0 d:\pagefile.sys d:\ 'pagefile.sys'
    
    
    PS C:\Users\FreeBooter> Get-CimInstance Win32_PageFileUsage
    
    Caption         Name            PeakUsage
    -------         ----            ---------
    D:\pagefile.sys D:\pagefile.sys        33
    
    
    PS C:\Users\FreeBooter> Get-wmiObject Win32_PageFileUsage
    
    Caption         Name            PeakUsage
    -------         ----            ---------
    D:\pagefile.sys D:\pagefile.sys        33

    Exactly.

    The commands that I posted were just to show that I was using Get commands [ short version ]. The commands actually used in the program are obviously longer than those in order to get the correct and desired output needed.
