I just learned about this. I used a 4gig Cruiser drive that supposedly allocated about 2500mb of memory to speed the system up. With 1gig of memory in the system dose that mean it should be working like it has 3.5gigs of memory? Any good or bad comments on this redyboost option?
Ready Boost can use 1 or more allocated drives (like usb sticks) to store the data over the capacity of you free RAM needed by Superfetch. RB is a the supplement to the Superfetch. This way Ready Boost stores what Superfetch cannot store in RAM (due to RAM shortage), and it can boost applications start by 1-3 %. RB is in no way to increase the amount of your free RAM, it is to cache the data often used by programs.
