Disable hibernation to delete hiberfil.sys?

Discussion in 'Windows Vista Performance' started by Wayne Abruzzo, Sep 15, 2006.

  1. I have no intentions of using the hibernation feature and would like to
    reclaim the 2GB of disk space that the automatically created hiberfil.sys
    file consumes. In WinXP and Win2K you could just disable the hibernation
    feature and hiberfil.sys just disappeared. Doesn't seem to work the same
    way in Vista. Am I missing something? Any suggestions?

    Thanks,
    Wayne

    Disk Cleanup now has the option of checking the hiberfil.sys to remove it.
