Split your page file among multiple drives

Generally,you should set the size of the paging file size as system RAM plus 12 MB and you still get low memory warnings increase to 1.5 X RAM(default setting).
if your machine is running disk and memory intensive applications like SQL Server then you may want to increase the initial pagefile size to 2 x RAM or even larger for better performance you can split into multiple disks or create multiple pagefiles on same volume.

Registry settings
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\MemoryManagement
c:\pagefile1\pagefile.sys lowerlimit upperlimit
c:\pagefile2\pagefile.sys lowerlimit upperlimit

or

c:\pagefile1\pagefile.sys lowerlimit upperlimit
d:\pagefile2\pagefile.sys lowerlimit upperlimit
e:\pagefile3\Pagefile.sys lowerlimit upperlimit
