    Default Any problem if I delete hyberfile.sys?

    I never put my computer in Hibernate mode. I noticed hyberfile.sys is using 12GB on my hard drive.

    Do you know of any problems that may occur if I delete it?

    And is this a safe way to delete it from the Command Line?: powercfg –h off

    I've already turned it off in the Control Panel Power options.

    Thanks.

    I believe that is the correct way to both turn off Hibernate and remove the file. It exists soley to allow use of that feature, so if you don't use it then you should be fine to remove it
