Readyboost win7

Specs: Windows Xp, 4gb Ram
What are the recommendations for using Readyboost? i read up that if you got 4gb ram you should use a 8gb flashdrive or 2 4gb flashdrives to get the most out of it, is this true? i plan on just using a 2gb flashdrive for the 4gb ram i got.

what does it actually do? does it work on win 7? i read up that on vista it didnt work, and that it makes the hardrive read things faster but dont really understand it.

The recommendations and what Readyboost really does are already explained in a nicely written article posted at the Wikipedia website. Go HERE to read it.

And yes it supposedly will work in Win 7 although I myself haven't yet tried it.

Keep in mind that the memory core of USB flash drives has a finite number of cycles before failure.

If you feel the need to use this feature then dedicate a flash drive to it exclusively.
