Splitting the Page File

If you have two or more physical drives (not just two or more partitions on a single physical drive), splitting the page file over each drive can improve performance because it means that Windows Vista can extract data from each drive’s page file simultaneously. For example, if your current initial page file size is 384MB, you’d set up a page file on a drive with a 192MB initial size, and another page file on a second drive with a 192MB initial size.

See “Changing the Paging File’s Location and Size” to learn how to split the page file.
