I've read a tons of articles about whether to disable or not to disable PageFile in Windows. For example: http://lifehacker.com/5426041/understanding-the-windows-pagefile-and-why-you-shouldnt-disable-it
The point to not to do it is usually, that if it is disabled and system runs out of RAM, it wil crash.
Ok, but what happens when the pagefile is enabled, but system runs out of RAM AND pagefile is also full. Will it also crash?
So is there any difference between (Windows 7 64-bit)
8 GB RAM, pagefile disabled
4 GB RAM, 4 GB pagefile
? Will one crash and the other won't if full?
Well, I mean from the operating system point of view. Not the difference that one is using a harddrive (slower) and the other one not.
