By default, Windows sets its Virtual Memory (Paging) on the same partition as the Windows installation. Many would have already known that Virtual Ram is paging file area which is used as a RAM (just that it is virtual), but what most wouldn’t have known is that Windows controlled application can perform better if the Virtual Memory (RAM) is set on a different partition other than the one Windows is currently installed.


The Settings You Can Set!

As you can see from the image above, Windows instillation is in C: drive while the Virtual Memory is set to use the space on F: drive for paging. This kind of settings gives better performance to application which uses high level of memory.

To access Virtual Memory options in Windows:
Right Click My Computer -> Choose Properties -> Advanced Tab -> Performance -> Advance -> Virtual Memory
