Thread: Want to put hibernation-file on other partition

  1. #1

    Default Want to put hibernation-file on other partition

    really off-topic, nothing dtools, but:
    in Windows XP:

    Is it possible to put the hibernation-file for hibernation-mode on a other partition?? After having updated to more RAM, the file doesn't fit any more on my first partition, C:\

    I'd like to put it on d:\
    does anyone know how to manage this?
    any registry-change maybe?

    Useless feature. Turn it off as soon as XP finished install. Only eats harddrive space, and isn't as convenient and fast resume as the Stand By feature.

    no,no. look, in fact I've turned it off long ago, but now I'm thinking that this ISN'T at all a bad idea. The amount of 512 megs of ram are the reason why I wanted to put it on - e.g. - d:\
    I dimensionized my win-partition only to 2gb, uhoh...

    any tips are welcome

    BTW, is my avatar TOO hideous?

    You'd be better off getting PartitionMagic to expand your C: drive. 2GB is barely enough to get XP booted.

    I did that with PM, but dummerweise probably there isn't a way to move this hibernation file...
