Watch out for pagefile size recommendations issued by Microsoft!
I have win7 8gb with pagefile set to system managed. Here's what that page shows now:
now the recommended value is calculated by the system which automatically sets the pagefile size (coded by MS) which is recommending a value and also ignoring the value. So if windows (coded by MS) doesn't understand how pagefiles work then what is the point even discussing it or paying any attention at all to 'expert advice'??
I'm glad this subject came up because on my win10 gaming rig I have 16gb with pagefile disabled and never had any short-on-storage issues - but maybe I now need to configure one for GalCiv3.
