My System Specs


This is a desktop correct?

Just wondering but why do you use hibernation? I only ask cause I don't and don't see the need on a desktop. That said yes that will get rid of the file completely. If you just want to see if the file is there then what you have to do is go into my computer and go to tools - folder options - view tab. Then look for the hide protected system files option and uncheck it. After you apply that go right to the root of c: and you will see the hibernation file. It is called hiberfil.sys and this way you can see how large it is.

Oh and no you can not move the hibernation file. At least from everything I have seen. Page file yes, hiberfil.sys no.
