#9136 closed enhancement (fixed)

'Choose swap size automatically' also means swap on boot volume

When selecting 'Choose swap size automatically', this also means that the swap file is going to reside on the boot volume. The VM preflet could give the user a cue about this, by letting the 'Use volume' drop-down list display the grayed out boot volume instead of any other volume previously selected by the user.

Actually, setting the swap size automatically should not have anything to do with the location.

Yeah, perhaps a slight rewording wouldn't hurt, like 'Choose swap settings automatically'.

Reworking the logic to let users select what volume to swap at while having the swap size automatically adjusted would seem needlessly complicated to me.

+1. It's mostly a wording issue :)

Changed to "Automatic swap management" in hrev45141
