    Thanks Bruce.
    I was hoping for a way to just delete the file, and rely on it's being rebuilt. But as this is only to reduce the size of C: for imaging once a month, it's not too difficult to do it manually.

    HI, Peter ~

    Turning off 'Hibernation' deletes the 'hiberfil.sys ' file. Turning it back on creates a new one.
