If ReadyBoost worked well, everyone would be doing it. Seeing as how it is rarely mentioned in any of these forums, it's probably not worth the effort - testing has pretty much confirmed that. There is no substitute for "real" RAM.

Plug your flash drive into one of the usb ports in the back of your pc. In a couple of days you will forget it is even there, thus eliminating accidental removal. I just did this procedure on an older XP machine that only had 1GB of ram, I used an old 4GB flash drive I had laying around and wasn`t using, and placed it in a rear usb port. The computer does seem a little smoother in operation, not any mind boggling speed increase. Like mickliq says, no substitute for "real" ram. I expect different types of computers/specs/hardware will have varing results. For me and mine, I`m leaving mine hooked up. I wasn`t using the usb drive for anything anyway, and I see no ill effects to my machine.

Readyboost is not known to many people and not all people can use it.

It is a great way to speed up Windows 7 systems if you tend to open a lot of files. And who doesn't? A mobile user could use an expresscard or other flash to help prevent the dangerous usb sticking out.

I can't say any reason not to use it as long as you don't bump or damage it and that would be true for any cord or connector or such.

It speeds up your system, try it.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
