Windows Vista has a new performance feature called ReadyBoost. This feature enables the use of a USB storage device instead of the slow paging file on your hard disk when you're low on physical memory (RAM). The logic is simple - the USB storage device is faster than your hard disk drive.
- The device must have at least 64MB storage.
- The device must be USB 2.0 compatible.
- The device must have a minimum read speed of 3.5 MB/s.
- The device must have a minimum write speed of 2.5 MB/s.
Procedure to enable ReadyBoost!
- Follow these steps to enable ReadyBoost:
- Plug in USB storage device.
- Go to Computer, right-click on the removable storage device and select Properties.
- Click on the ReadyBoost tab.
- Select Use This Device and set the amount of space to use for the system file.
- Click OK.
