  • [...]is there any way i can get ready boost on an external hard drive? I'm using a 1 gig flash drive and i don't think I'm getting the max amount of RAM possible... its only putting out 920 MB[...]

  • Hello battery,

    It isn't possible to have ready boost on an external drive, only on a Vista laptop or PC.But you can use an external flash drive for ready boost on your PC or laptop.

    You can use an external USB memory stick or even flash cards in Vista to get the extra RAM. When you plug your device in it should get you the option to use the device to boost system performance and let you select just how much of the device you wish to use for ready boost.

    It normal for a 1 gig flash card to be a bit less than the stated capacity and this is due to the way that the manufacturers work out the capacity. They do so using the largest possible method, which is different to how Windows works it out, meaning that a 30GB hard disk is only really 28GB.

    With flash drives part of the space is also taken up by the file system, so 920MB on a 1Gig flash drive sounds about right.

  • I should also add that the data used in Ready Boost is encrypted and compressed to about a 2.1 ratio. In other words you'll get nearly 2GBs of data of your 1GB card when using it for ready boost.
