Pagefile filling up

You can configure the page file by using System Properties:

  1. Run sysdm.cpl
  2. Go to Advanced
  3. Select Settings under Performance
  4. Go to Advanced (again)
  5. Select Change under Virtual Memory

Let's explore the different options:


  • System managed – This is the default option and recommended by Microsoft
  • Custom Size – Allows you to manually configure the size of the paging file
  • No paging file – Configure the system for not having a page file

When using System Managed, Windows determines the size of the page file based on the amount of physical memory
