Hi,

Having a rather frustrating problem with a Windows 2000 Server box. It was
reporting that a disk was failing, this disk contained PageFile.sys. Machine
gradually ground to a halt as the payfile was being used more and more.
Moved pagefile to another disk, removed reported faulty disk (scsi).
Rebooted, after a while windows reporting that the disk where the pagefile
has moved to is also now faulty. I'm fairly convinced this is a problem with
the pagefile rather than the disks themselves. Anyone had any similar
experiences? If so is there any way of keeping the box going long enough to
get all the files I need?

Any help much appreciated,

Steve
