Notice that pagefile.sys and hiberfil.sys take up 7GB total!

To delete these files safely in Windows 7, you must disable “Hibernate Support” in your power options in the control panel.

1.  Go to Start > Search, type in “powercfg.cpl” go to advanced power options, find the “Sleep” section and make sure sleep is set to “never”

2.  We also need to make sure virtual memory is not enabled.   (coming soon)
