New poster here. I'm not interested in the pros or cons of using ReadyBoost. I'm playing with it on my DESKTOP to see if I notice any change. I don't think I will, but what the heck, I have time to kill. What I can't find are answers to specific questions as I play with the system. I am dedicating a flash drive for the ReadyBoost function. P.S., I know just enough about computers to be dangerous.
Not fully understanding exactly how the process works, and not really caring for that matter, on my USB drive settings, should I check:
1) "Compress this drive..." (Guess is no)
2) "Allow files...to have contents indexed..." (Guess is yes)
and under "Policies" in device manager, should I check:
3) "Better Performance" / "Enable write caching in windows..." I don't have power backup, but since I have no other files on the USB, I wasn't sure if the risk was still high with only ReadyBoost cache on it. (Guess is don't check)
Thanks for the help.
