Windows 7: ReadyBoost Problems in Win 7

ReadyBoost Problems in Win 7

Readyboost worked fine for me all during the Vista deployment.

But, in windows 7, it did not autostart and the log file showed nothing. Now I am getting the following error messages:

Session "ReadyBoot" has terminated with error(s) 0xC0000188

The maximum file size for session "ReadyBoot" has been reached. As a result, events may be lost (not logged) to file C:\Windows\Prefetch\ReadyBoot\ReadyBoot.etl. The maximum files size is currently set to 20971520 bytes

Also, when autoplay starts, it does not provide the speed up your system. It displays make drive open files or backup files.

Can anyone help with this? Thanks in advance.

Hi Rick Hackney and welcome to the forum!

Most ReadyBoost errors I've encountered are from power fluctuations or sudden shutdowns. You might want to reformat the Flash Disk again and enable ReadyBoost manually. If you get the same errors try running the Check Disk on it.

Let us know how it turns out

Check disk yielded no problems and open autoplay is no longer an option in properties.

To reset Autoplay options, go to Start>All Programs>Default Programs>Change AutoPlay Settings>Reset all defaults

Format the USB Drive for ReadyBoost:
Right-click device
Click on Restore device defaults
If this will not work, you can make sure that the following settings are imposed;
File system should be set to (FAT32) Default
Allocation unit size, either Defualt or at 4096 bytes
Proceed with format
After the format, you can right-click the device and enable ReadyBoost

Please try and restart after all these

Let us know how it turns out.

Got through all formatting and default to drive, but when right clicking properties, all I get is tools, hardware, customize, general and sharing -no readyboost. My USB flash is sony 8 gig and worked in Vista (certified vista ready) and I even tried a smaller certified 4 gig drive - same problem. I am really stumped over this one.

Please do the following;

Click on Win+R and type msconfig
Go to services
Verify if you have "Superfetch" checked
If not, put a check on it and restart system

If it's checked;
Click on Win+R
Type services.msc
Scroll to Superfetch and verify if it's started
If it is, please restart the service

Check your drive options again.

Please let us know if this works out

I have superfetch enabled and running. Tried all sorts of formatting options and no matter what I do, the readyboost tab will not reappear in right click | properties.

Wow, turning on superfetch did the trick!! Thanks for all the diagnostic advice. This was the only other problem that I am having the Win 7000 build.

Thanks again!
