Windows 7: Readyboot error

Readyboot error

I keep popping this event. It happened when cache was at 2xxxxx so I increased it, doubled its size. Now its full again????

I use SSD's so superfetch is disabled. But per MS, I have left prefetch enabled.
If I disable prefetch, what are the consequences?

The error is (apparently) harmless and it seems to be common among people who upgraded to SSDs and thus shut down Superfetch.

For what it is worth, I had this error for a long time and then a few days ago I realized that my partitions were misaligned (thanks, Dell for making your factory image to the old sector-63 alignment). I used Gparted (and a second HD for temp space) to realign the partitions. I did notice after a while that the Readyboot error stopped after I did this.

So i suppose you could check to see what the starting cluster of your c: drive is. If the number doesnt divide evenly by 1024, then you may have just found your problem.
