Pretext: I'm re-installing my system, with an un-attended install, and I'm moving my users directory to another drive.
Question: I'm wondering where would I see more performance? Should I keep my page file on the primary drive, with windows, or should I move it to the other drive along with the users directory. or should I just turn paging off alltogehter (or at least way down) as I have 8GB of ram?
Theory: As far as I understand the hole reason you may see a performance gain from moving the pagefile off the primary drive, is because its not competing for reads/writes but I do believe the Users directory (being appData, and whatnot is located in there) is writen/read from much more often then the programs/windows directories. thought the ProgramData folder will still be on the primary drive. What do you think superusers?
