I have two operating systems installed (windows 8 & mint) and I am trying to shrink the original windows partition, but there is the swapfile.sys permanent file in the way. So I was wondering, is it possible to log into the Linux side, then access the swapfile.sys and move it when it is not open?
You can move
The following steps will disable
Afterwards enter following command in command line (requires administrative privileges):
If new location path doesn't contain spaces, quotes can be omitted. Note that in Windows PowerShell (which is promoted in Windows 8.1)
After that you can enable pagefile and newly created
This is the new pagefile for "Windows Store Apps". I've searched for a way to move it for, but never found a way. You can only stop the creation if you disable the pagefile completely.
