    Disk Cache

    I haven't done this in quite awhile and can't seem to remember where the setting are. When you load a program and the memory gets low, it will use the cache on the hard drive. Where can I set this amount to specify how much of a cache is set?

    I am using Windows XP Pro. While I am asking, I should also ask where I would do this in Windows 7 also.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Do you mean the pagefile aka virtual memory?

    hiberfil.sys is used to store your memory state when the system goes into hibernation mode. You would either enable or disable hibernation mode in the Control Panel - Power Options - Hibernate
