I have heard that partitioning the Mac OS swap file and separating it from the primary partition helps to improve performance. I am ready to partition my hard drive and proceed with this, but since I haven't done it before I'm not quite sure how to go about it. For example: I have Disk Utility set to partition the swap file, but the smallest partition Disk Utility will allow me to create is 1.07 GB. Would I have to get a different partitioning tool in order to allow me to create a smaller partition? What size should I make the partition? I have a Mac Mini with 2GB of RAM and an Intel Core Duo; would I need to make it bigger than I had planned? What format should the partition be? The HFS+? If so, with or without journaling? Would that affect the swap file's performance? I'm using Xupport.app to move the swap file, so I think it should work. I simply need to get all the answers before I attempt something like this.
