Why do I have 2 paging files?

Recommended Posts

I checked my root directory and discovered a swapfile.sys.  However, I already had a pagefile.sys, which is Windows swap file.

 

 

So, why do I suddenly have something called swapfile.sys which was the old name for pagefile.sys in older Windows versions?  :unknown:

 

 

:unsure:

Yeah, I am running Windows 8.  The odd thing is I don't think I ever noticed there were 2 paging files before since I got this new machine in August.
