Hello, I recently activated the hibernate option on my computer, but found out that the Hiberfil.sys file takes around 2-3GB of space on the hard-disk. Why is that so?

hi. Hiberfil.sys is file, where windows stores your current data in Ram for Hibernate power management. so 2-3GB is normal. on my PC it takes arount 4Gb. you can disable Hibernate mode, and this file will be deleted. powercfg -h off command will disable Hibernate mode. note, that you should run command prompt in administrator mode

thanks for the info...
Is it possible however to move this file to another hard-disk with more space available and use it from there?
