How do I move the swap / paging file
My Windows Server 2003 R2 has a 12GB OS partition! I want to move the swap file to free up a bit of space, is there any pitfall I should be aware of. I presume I just follow the Server 2000 procedure in:
Moving the Windows Default Paging and Spool File
What size would be optimum to set the new file to on the D: drive?

Follow MSFT best practise. Don't forget to have a mini page file for the OS boot volume, I will need to confirm this, however it may have only been for Win2K.
Ensure it's big enough to capture RAM for full mem dumps for analysis.
