Windows swap file


New Member
Does anyone know when you select the option to clear the Windows Swap File in Eraser 5.7 does it clear multiple swap files(Pagefile.sys)? I moved my main swap file to another drive due to low space on my system volume & windows recomended keeping a swap file of 2 meg on my system volume incase of a system crash. I run NT4.0.

I believe this option turns on a feature in Windows via the registry that clears the Pagefile.sys. As such Windows should know to clear any and all Pagefile.sys on the system.
choosing that option definitely does make a registry change (in one of the registry strings the entry value changes from 0 to 1), and it is the Windows system itself rather than Eraser that wipes the pagefile. However, I don't know if it wipes multiple swap files.
