MS: Windows 7 move pagefile error

When you move a Windows 7 the pagefile.sys file to another hard drive and restart you computer you receive following error:

Windows created a temporary paging file on your computer because of a problem that occurred with your paging file configuration when you started your computer. The total paging file size for all disk drives may be somewhat larger than the size you specified.

Try to increase the size of the pagefile. For example if you have 4GB of RAM. Set pagefile to 4096MB minimum and 8192 MB as maximum.
