Windows 7: Windows 7: Readyboost

I have a question about ready boost and scratch disks. Is it the same thing or what?

I got a tip from eee forums to put your scratch disk on the sd card, but how would that work if I'm also using ready boost on the sd card?

I use it on my old system all day every day. With only 512 MB RAM it make a BIG difference.

Copernicus....I don't know what you are talking about "scratch disks" I have never heard of that. Do you mean using scratched disks in the CD drive?

Also, does anyone know any other ReadyBoost type programs for Windows 7 as well as a Fax program you would reccommend? Thanks!
Latest builds seem to prompt for Readyboost when you insert a USB device.

Haven't needed it so far myself however.

cheers

Does 7 support more than 2GB for ReadyBoost? I know Vista limited it to that but I haven't actually looked it up for 7.

I have a max of 4GB showing up in Build 7077. I'm not sure yet whether it is helping...I'm using it on an old Thinkpad T43 with 1.5GB of memory.

Paging files I meant, I'm thinking photoshop, lol, but they're the same thing.

Yes no more 4 GB limit, and now you can use multiple devices.

Do you really need more than 4 GB of memory on a low-powered system?

If you're running a low-powered system, there is simply no way you can use all of your existing ram, let's say 1 GB, and another 4 GB. Much less even 2 GB of RAM. The other components of the system would be too stressed, such as the hard drive or the processor.

Since I have 4gb actual ram, I figure that Ill stick to using 4gb readyboost to match.
