Windows 7: Do I have to keep my ReadyBoost plugged in?

Do I have to keep my ReadyBoost plugged in?

Hi guys, just have a quick question. I have just started using ReadyBoost and I need to know how to go about ejecting it. Well I don't plan on using it when I don't have my laptop on my desk. So when I need to plug out the USB Drive, do I eject it the same way I would? Do I just pull it out? If I restart the computer without it plugged in, will Windows know that and continue to work without it? I don't want to be boring but I just want to be safe.

Thanks

Russell

Use explorer and find your usb drive. Right click->properties. Click on Readyboost tab. Select do not use this device and click ok. Use normal procedures to safely remove usb device.

So I have to do that every time I want to eject the USB?

The system writes the pages into your pagefile on the disk and on the stick. Pulling the stick should not impede the operation.
