    I recently had about 356mb on my harddrive. My swap file used to be around 127mb. After I installed my hp printer, I only have like maximum of around 60mb on my harddrive. My swap file is now a whopping 344mb! How do I cut the space down?

    in XP:
    control panel -> system (in classic view) -> Advanced -> PErformance -> Advanced -> Page file

    Other versions of windows should (optimistically) be similar, btw 344 doesn't sound huge to me

    3 times the size of system (ram) memory you have.

    Depends on who you ask.
    I've read everything from zero ( assuming physical RAM in excess of 512MB) to 1.5x RAM.
    Try what you like and see what happens.

    I like to use around half my ram size for a pagefile size on my computer.

    On my other ones, it is just a bit more than the total amount of ram.

    They are all set to 300mb....

    edit: Oh yeah, and use the same number as min and max, it stops fragmentation, which means it can be read faster, and makes system performance faster.
