Enable NTFS non-paged pool usage

By default NTFS allocates memory from both pageable and non-pageable memory as needed. Enabling this setting tells NTFS to use non-pageable memory for all allocations. NTFS also changes all of its code sections to be non-pageable.

The benefit of enabling this feature is a reduction in page-faults and stack usage at the cost of additional memory consumption.

A reboot is required for this setting to take effect

Supported on: At least Windows 10 Server, Windows 10 or Windows 10 RT
