There have been a few pagefile.sys detections recently on the windows avast 4 Home/Pro forum, I'm not sure how reliable this is as there is no way to check (e.g. it can't say what is infected as it treats it as a single file) since the size of the pagefile.sys it will probably be too big to send to the chest. I have excluded mine in the standard shield exclusions, ?:\pagefile.sys so it covers pagefile.sys files on other drives.

Note:
The above exclusion path would need to be modified.

In linux you cannot write to an NTFS volume, only read it, hence why the file cannot be "moved" to chest.

If you are interested in writing to an NTFS volume within linux, this may be of interest to you, see below link.
