I noticed two big (~ 2GB) files (hiberfil.sys and pagefile.sys) at the root of my C: drive and wondered what they were. I searched on google and found some interesting links, but did not find any answer on this site. I guess it would be good to have this question answered here for future reference.
Here are my questions :
- What is the file hiberfil.sys for ?
- What is the file pagefile.sys for ?
- Can I safely delete these files ?
UPDATE : Thank you all, see accepted answer for best explanations and links!
