I have a shortage of space on my Asus 701 with a 4 gb ssd.
I have a 8 gb SD Card which I wish to move the swap file to, this would also save the SSD from wear & tear.

How can I persuade Windows (xp or W7) to use a "removable drive". It accepts the setting but reverts as soon as it is rebooted.

I have considered compressing the drive, but a bit hesitant in doing this to a SSD.

Any suggestions?
