windows 7 page and hibernation file size

I have recently upgraded the RAM in my computer to 16 GB.  I have noticed that my pagefile.sys is now 15.9 GB and hiberfil.sys file is 12.0 GB.  I don't use hibernation.  My computer has two physical hard drives (basically an OS/Program Drive and a Data drive).   What is the appropriate amount for the page file size on the OS drive and is there a way to remove/reduce the size of the hiberfil.sys file?  I am planning on migrating my OS drive to an SSD sometime in the near future and would like to reduce the footprint of these two files for the migration.  

Thank you for any advice.

Review your power option settings


Allow win to manage page file size

What size ssd are you planning on buying?
