Hi Guys

I am quite confused. Our support guy put a 512 MB to 1024 MB Page file on drive c:
drive d is system managed

Is Page file enough for a web server not to have a memory exception?

Server specs
4GB RAM
intel xeon

Please see the Microsoft recommendations on the page file: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/889654[^].

I think this article is also useful, and provides some in-depth explanations: http://lifehacker.com/5426041/understanding-the-windows-pagefile-and-why-you-shouldnt-disable-it[^].
