    XP, SSD and swap files.

    I have XP set up with a separate partition for my swap file. It's the first partition on the drive. With the speed of the SSD drive I know that doing that does gain me anything. I also limited the swap file size to 2.5 times my memory to limit constant re-sizing but again with the SSD drive do I gain anything?

    Thanks

    IMO, no. Your PF is best left in residence with the os, especially on a SSD.
    If you use drive imaging, you can usually configure the imaging software to omit ther PF when image creation is made.
    So it's a total waste of time and energy creating a separate partition for this, not to mention adding uneeded & useless complexity.
