SpeedUpMyPC Terms Explained

Page File Usage

Question: What does page file usage mean?
Answer: Page file usage measures how much of the page file is currently in use. The page file is used by Windows to emulate RAM preventing the system from running out of resources, even if all physical memory has been allocated. Running out of page file or swap file space usually results in serious performance problems or even a crash.
