Free 4 GB by Moving the Page file

I have Dual boot person I have Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 r2.

I am running Hyper-V on Windows Server 2008 r2, and I always need more disk space in the Windows Server 2008 r2 drive.

I remember one old trick which is moving the page file to one partition for both OSs

Open System Properties

Select Drive C where you Installed your second OS and select System managed size.

Select Drive D where your current OS is installed and select No paging file.
