Just running Windows 10 will use 40-50% of 8GB all by itself (and more with integrated graphics), so if your Adobe is not getting enough physical RAM to run properly, then Windows should be using the pagefile.sys file on the hard drive as "virtual memory" but it comes at a performance hit.     

 

You need sufficient free space on the HDD for thagefile.sys, so make sure you have enough free space on your HDD or SSD.

thank you very much for your help!

i have 512GB SSD, and i split it into 2 partition. One of data C (150GB) for processing and software like adobe and corel. (300gb) for data D, which i only use it to saves data such as my project files etc. i think the two partitions is have enough free space. is there something wrong with what i did? how should i set up the pagefile.sys?
