I noticed, that the size of the swap file is very dramatically reflected on the size of R-DriveImage backup of the system (Win2k SP4). That clearly indicate, that the data in swap file are not that well compresable and that lead me to idea, that if I can run some utility prior starting R-DriveImage for the backup, and that utility clear the swap file (all zeroes seems to be the best for compression), then I can have a much smaller backup files and much faster the time of restore.
When experimenting with Duron class CPUs (even underclocked, sometimes), this could be welcome speed up.
So I do wonder, if some utility like that does exist or if it can be done using some Win system functions, like the registers setting that clear the swap on reboot/shutdown.
Anyone know, if that could be done "on the fly" and not only on reboot/shutdown?
