    I am running FD-ISR and RollbackRX and I just saw pagefile.sys, not as a hidden file, but visible in my c: root directory. I don't even have the pagefile.sys on my C: drive but I can't delete it. If I delete it outside windows, it comes back. Any ideas? Not a bother though but wasting 2048 MB of hard disk space. I know its a RollbackRX problem as it is around this forum, but how can I delete it?

    Try setting up a pagefile for your C: drive then remove it.

    Thanks guys, but I don't think it was that kind of problem. Looking around in several posts, I cam up with the conclusion that I had to remove RollbackRX for it to let me remove that file since the C: Drive was protected be RollbackRX. I think this pagefile.sys slipped through the images which was a previous problem with RollbackRX. I is now gone and it is where it belongs, D: Drive which is not protected by RollbackRX.

    UPDATE:
    Just found out that another pagefile.sys just magically appeared on my C: Drive, though this time its no bother, its at 0 bytes.
