    1. Thanks for stopping in and comment, In Windows 7, the box Automatically manage paging file size for all drives comes prechecked, so we have to uncheck it to perform the operation.

      Now, from the local drives list, click on your Pen Drive letter, eg. H and set the Custom Size for it. If you have 4 GB Pen Drive, then enter 700 in Initial Size and 3072 in Maximum size and hit Set.

      i hope you get the solution :)
