I have 1 gig of ram, therefore i've decided to try windows Readyboost.
I bought a 2gb Attache optima pro flash drive.
Here's the scenario:
I plug the flash drive into my USB port of my laptop, and click "Use this device to speed up my system"...etc....I reserve all 2 gigs of the flash drive as readyboost space. Everything is good and dandy, as you can see in this screenshot:
Here's the "General Properties" for the flash drive:
So far, everything is working great. My flash drive is flashing every once in a while, which I assume means it is being read from, etc. Readyboost is working, this is what I see when i browse to the USB drive:
After about ten minutes or so, though, (pretty much random), readyboost stops working.
It stops flashing completely. When I browse to the flash drive like I did before, It sees the flash drive like usual. However, when i double click it, no longer is there a "readyboost cache" file stored on the flash drive. It says "This disk is empty"
On top of that, when I right click on the "USB Drive" in windows explorer and hit properties, it says this:
To get readyboost working again I am forced to take out the flash drive, wait a second, then plug it back in.
Thanks alot guys, its really appreciated.
