  I have a usb flash drive that has enough useless info that I can't use it for a booster the computer says.  Is there a way to erase flash completely then dedicate it to boost?

Format it?

 

BTW...unless you're extremely short of real RAM (very cheap these days) ReadyBoost  won't make much of a difference since USB is much, much slower than RAM.
