The Page Files grid shows information about the page files in use by Windows.
Page Files are disk files that the Windows Virtual Memory Manager uses to back up physical memory. Code and data is moved between physical memory and the page files as required, giving processes on the system the illusion that there is much more physical memory available than there really is. The process of moving data and code between memory and disk is called paging.
