Windows uses part of the user's hard drive space as \"Virtual memory\". It loads what it needs to load into the much faster RAM (Random Access Memory) memory, but creates a swap or page file on the hard drive that it uses to swap data in and out of RAM. Pagefile.sys is located on the root of C: drive (or in where the operating system is installed) and is named as pagefile.sys, but it is a hidden system file so the user won't see it unless they have changed their file viewing settings to show hidden and system files.
