Hello. This is not the place to really post questions about a function of Windows computers, but being that you can access it via the use of a flash drive, I came here. You see, I am profoundly curious on people's openions on this function of Windows  7! To begin, Windows 7 has this function where if you plug in a flash stick or whatever the lil stick things are called, you can at times get an option called "ReadyBoost." This allows them to use their flash stick as sort of a boost to their computer.  Basically It provides something similar to RAM. RANDOM ACCESS MEMORY." My question is, How much success have you had in the lines of ReadyBoost? I'm using it as I speak, and it has helped me somewhat. I've gotten some slight increase in the speed of my computer. I'd like to see other people's replies, and get some info into what they have seen with this function. If you could, please tell me what you think, and help me get others to reply, because I really want to see what people think about this function. Thank you SO MUCH, and God Bless.

ReadyBoost was a good ideal for computers with small amounts of RAM. However, when you have more than enough RAM, ReadyBoost won’t really help . . . and that's simply because USB access is slower than RAM.

As the price of RAM decreased and more RAM was being installed in computers, the advantages of ReadyBoost in mitigating the performance deterioration due to insufficient memory has decreased.
