The Microsoft® Exchange Server Analyzer Tool has determined that your page file is in a location that can affect server performance negatively. The page file should not be located on the same disk as Exchange databases or the Exchange log files. It is also a good idea to isolate the page file from the system files.

It is recommended that your page file be located on a dedicated partition or high-speed disk.

To correct this warning

  • Move the page file to a location that does not contain Exchange database or log files and, if possible, to a location that does not contain the system partition.
