Swap Cop X has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

When I first bought my Powerbook (with 6 GB hard drive), I had a great idea. Partition the hard-drive into three sections, one each for MacOS 9, LinuxPPC, and (for the future) OS X (with a few extra utility partitions for Linux swap space, etc.). But then OS X came along, and so did an MP3 collection. I removed Linux, since I could SSH, emacs, and perl perfectly fine in OS X, and the old Linux directory became an MP3 disk. But OS X is huge, and I felt a little cramped in the 1.7 GB partition, and backing up all the data I had would be too difficult, so repartitioning was out of the question. So I wrote Monolingual ( more...

1. Works on Panther
2. Very simple, no bloat, fool-proof
3. Contrary to another reviewer, I do not have any swapfile in /var/vm/. Remember,as Swap Cop asks you, to *restart* the program Cop just after restarting the computer - not the session - (BTW, when you restart the computer, you can see a message about alternative swap location)
4. There is a sponsor ad, quite obstrusive but harmless (you use swap cop only once, after all)
5. A good idea would be to allow to make swap partition invisible
6. This soft is FREE!

I forgot to add that that SC change the Partition from HFS+ journalised to HFS. While I can understand turning off journaling, I'm not that sure why downgrading to HFS, instead of HFS+.

Works perfectly in os 10.3.4.
i did it on my g3iMac 350Mhz 128MB ram
I also used it on my power tower pro with 225Mhz
320MB ram OS 10.1.5 with xpostfacto and it defenently boosted the performance.Quicktime now opens in 1 bounce(on the power tower)i used to open in 6.Safari opens in 1 bounce(on the iMac)it used to open in 4 when i say bounce i mean how many time it bounces in the dock.Great program

Does not work after updating to 10.3.3

It claims the swap location has been changed, but actually, the swap files is still located at /var/vm/swapfile0

However, in the boot panel a strange message is displayed: "Check /etc/rc -- VM already running!"

I'm getting the same message in the boot panel ("Check /etc/rc -- VM already running!"). I'd like to restore my original swapfile settings, but haven't had any success finding out how.

On startup, I also can't get the boot panel to stop displaying the "Check /etc/rc -- VM already running!" error message.

I've tried resetting and moving the swap file many times, even while logged-in as root, to no avail.

In desperation, I even tried using a utility app called "Xupport" to both move the swapfile and reset the rc file to default. That blasted error message won't go away!

Any clue on how to reset the system to the 'default' seetings?
