Is pagefile.sys the only file for virtual memory of computer?
It is said that for security reason, this file should be cleared at shutdown in order not to be accessed by other users.
But, in my case, the adminstrator do not allow me to do so.
I guess that the existing data inside this file should continuously be "overwritten" by fresh new data everytime you are running applications on computer. Is that right??
So if , under my local setting, I processed some sensitive information (e.g. passoword, secret document) in my computer 20 days ago and then kept on using the computer in next 19 days, has my sensitive information in pagefile.sys be already overwritten by other fresh new data ?
By the way, can the theft extract the whole file (about 50MB) from pagefile.sys?
Thank you for your sharing.
