Use System Properties/Performance Options/Advanced to set the Windows 
swapfile to a fixed size that is 1.5x larger than the amount of RAM in the 
system. Make sure that the Initial and Maximum sizes are identical. Place 
half of the file on one physical disk and the other half on the other 
physical disk--not another partition on the same disk--if available.

Use pagedfrg from
to make sure that the swapfile is contiguous on the disk.

Setup Photoshop to use a separate partition --preferably an empty one-- of 
at least 2 GB in size. Larger is better. The designated space should be 
contiguous and not used for anything else. Photoshop uses its own cache 
files for image data. It only uses the Windows swapfile for program code 
and system-level tasks.
