ReadyBoost - Enhanced your Vist performance!

Recently, we bought a Thumb drive that is ready for BOOST up Windows Vista. Cool huh? Ya. Its only about 20% more expensive than normal Thumb drive.

What is ReadyBoost? Windows ReadyBoost can use storage space on some removable media devices, such as USB flash drives, to speed up your computer.

When you insert a device with this capability in Windows Vista, the AutoPlay dialog will offer you the option to speed up your system using Windows ReadyBoost. If you select this option, you can then choose how much memory to use for this purpose.

Some universal serial bus (USB) storage devices contain both slow and fast flash memory, and Windows can only use fast flash memory to speed up your computer. So if your device contains both slow and fast memory, keep in mind that you can only use the fast memory portion for this purpose.

The recommended amount of memory to use for this acceleration is one to three times the amount of random access memory (RAM) installed in your computer. For instance, if your computer has 1GB of RAM and you plug in a 4 GB USB flash drive, setting aside from 1GB to 3GB of that drive will offer the best performance boost. The minimum size for any USB flash drive to work is 256 MB.
