Paging file not found at startup

By schukwu ·
Does any one know the how I can resolve this?

I have a system that does not create a page file at startup even when it was specified.

I use Win 2000 and the hard disk has enough space.

Just a suggestion. I have seen where the permissions have been changed on the root drive, usually c: Open an explorer window and find the c drive. Right click and select Properties. Then select the Security tab.

In the top window, check to see who has security permissions to your c drive. Make certain that SYSTEM has full control over the entire drive.

If you already have the SYSTEM account with full control, then I do not know the answer to your problem.

Check it out

Hi,

Besides security issues, how big is the page file you want to set up and how fragmented is your drive?

You can't create a page file larger than the largest contiguous block of disk space available. You can't rely on the total available disk space number when it comes to page file creation since it's possible to have many fragmented areas on the disk smaller than the page file size you want to create but the sum of all of those areas is much larger than the size of the page file you want to create. I suggest you first clean up the drive (if applicable) and defrag it before attempt to create the pagefile.
