    A swap file, also called a page file, is an area on the hard drive used for temporary storage of information. Windows uses the swap file to improve performance.

    To view your current swap file information in Windows 7

    From the Start menu, right-click My Computer or Computer, and then select Properties.

    Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
    From the Tasks menu, select Advanced system settings.

    In the dialog box that opens, click the Advanced tab. Under the "Performance" section, select Settings... .

    In the Performance Options dialog box, select the Advanced tab.

    Click Change... . The swap file information is listed at the bottom.

    Hope this Helps
