... and I have a recovery partition,D drive which is showing 6.34GB free out of 9.99GB
This little tip is really only of use to people who like myself create a "Image" of their HDD OS on a fairly regular basis for backup purposes.
As with a lot of new/ish computers these days they come with a restore/recovery partition, (sometimes it's a hidden partition, but that does not matter either) which as we know, the recovery partition has a bit/lot of wasted space of which we will probably never use. (Dead space)
The tip is to transfer your "Pagefile" (Virtual memory) to the recovery partition, the recovery partition is probably FAT 32, but that does not matter, (and does not need changing).
However, this will not speed-up (or slow down) your PC as the recovery partition is usually a partition of the same HDD. But it will reduce the size of your C: drive by the size of the Pagefile.
Also there is less chance of the Pagefile becoming "fragged" as the recovery partition is very rarely used and you can use the maximum setting that your PC wants, needs or recommends.
If you use this method, please "Defrag" the recovery partition before selecting it to transfer the pagefile settings onto-it.
I forgot to say, if you use a dual-boot system, you can still assign both "Pagefile" settings to the same drive.
