Depending on a SSD for a pagefile is a great indicator that your system needs more ram. Systems with sufficient ram and without applications that specifially require on don't even need to have a pagefile.
If the system has plenty of surplus RAM, the system should only hit the pagefile when anomalous situations arise, e.g. runaway process with a memory leak. If this happens and you *don't* have a pagefile, the result will be random system instability and/or a system crash.
There is *no* valid reason I can think of to disable the pagefile on a modern desktop OS.
If you've got plenty of RAM, go ahead and put the pagefile on mechanical storage if you don't want to reserve SSD space for it. It won't materially impact performance since it'll only get used in the above mentioned anomalous situations, and when (not if) those situations *do* arise, it'll prevent the system from crashing.
For heaven's sake, don't disable the pagefile. Doing so is just plain silly.
The years just pass like trains. I wave, but they don't slow down.
