Jump to user comments
operating system A file used by a program or, more often,
an operating system as swap space. A swap file is usually
allocated as a long contiguous section of a hard disk to
reduce access time. The disk space used for a swap file can
not be used for other things. Under Microsoft Windows, swap
files are recommended not to exceed three times the available
RAM and are usually 150 percent of the RAM size.
