|I found this answer that windows will only support 16 pagefile.sys files. This blog says you can find info in registry. You can see your pagefile.sys files if you go in and turn it off and then view hidden files. You cannot open the files to see what is in them unless you have a special program. I wish I knew what program I could get to open them.|
When the system boots up, the Session Manager process determines the list of page files to open by reading the value in the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PagingFiles. This value contains the name of the paging file as well as the minimum and maximum size of each paging file. Windows supports up to 16 page files. On a 32-bit system running the normal kernel, the maximum size of each page file is 4095 MB. On x64 systems and x86 systems with the PAE kernel, the maximum page file size is 16 terabytes (16TB). On IA-64 systems, each page file can be as large as 32 terabytes.
To view the list of page files, you can either look at the HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management\PagingFiles registry value. The paging file configuration settings are managed through the System utility in Control Panel. Below are two examples of page file settings:
