Windows virtual memory swap is configured to reside on FastBack repository.

All FastBack dedicated folders and repositories must be used exclusively for FastBack.

Diagnosing the problem

Issue dir /a:h command from the DOS prompt at the root of the FastBack Repository

to confirm location of the pagefile.sys

For example:

F:\> dir /a:h
