I reduced my pagefil.sys files from 576mB (WTF!!!) to 100Megs with another 100Megs margin (can grow to 200).
I am quite sur I reduced it before though...I KNOW i didn't set it to 500 megs...
Ne way, about *randomnly* scanning my HDD inlook of file extensions is in my opinion NOT a solution....
How do you know these files ARENT't needed on win9X Snake. FYI i somthimes back up **** my putting a .bak extension and so do many programs...

Gizmo, I currently use the function that comes with PGP 7.0.3 to wipe free space...have u tried it? IS your one more efficient, I've trusted PGP up to now, what do u reckon...
