Handy little script for changing the location of the system page file using PowerShell.

$computer = Get-WmiObject Win32_computersystem -EnableAllPrivileges

$computer.AutomaticManagedPagefile = $false


$CurrentPageFile = Get-WmiObject -Query “select * from Win32_PageFileSetting where name='c:\\pagefile.sys’”


Set-WMIInstance -Class Win32_PageFileSetting -Arguments @{name="d:\pagefile.sys”;InitialSize = 0; MaximumSize = 0}

I can’t take any credit for this script, I’m posting it here so that I can find easily find it again in the future J
