    Whilst trying to find out what takes up the most space on my hdd I came across pagefile.sys which is now 15gb in size and is the largest file on my hdd. My question is how do I refresh it to make it start over or how do i delete it/make it smaller because I know that I need it as it is virtual ram but it is eating away at my hdd. My ram is only 512mb btw
