    What does it say under system management...the window where you moved your pagefile?

    you also have to click the other drives and select "no paging file" for those drives if you dont want them to have a page file

    no need so far as i can see in your situation to have multiple pagefiles. i would just pick the drive you will be accessing the least (sans OS, apps/programs) and make it so. ideally, on a 2nd controller would be optimal, but beggars cant be choosers.

    i see you have a static swap file size. good man. slows the rate of drive fragmentation due to page file resizing (through windows dynamically managing its size). its an old-school practice, but i still do it.

    Yup...there ya go, that's what I was getting at..wanted to see.
    I'd even leave it on there...Windows can figure out which drive is being used the least..if you have multiple pagefiles..and Windows will hit the pagefile on the drive being used the least. No biggie..either way.
