Last week I was playing a game when suddenly a warning appeared that my SDD was completely full. This was strange, because there was supposed to more than 25GB of free disk space.
After some investigating, I discovered that the pagefile.sys had ~23GB. I shifted it to my internal HDD with plenty of free space and thought that the problem would have been solved.
However, now, every time I play this game, after 45 minutes more or less, the computer get's extremely slow and unresponsive, while performing very simple tasks (opening Windows Explorer, web surfing). The game on the other hand continues working well for some time, but then eventually also gets unresponsive.
I tried to disable virtual memory completely, but it didn't change anything.
Here are my specs:
- 8GB RAM
- Windows 8 64 Professional
- GPU: Quadro K1000M
By the way, the game is DotA 2, and all the graphic settings are low, so it shouldn't be a problem with the hardware specs. Before the issue occurred, the game was working fine for the last couple of months.
Here are some images that might clarify the issue:
