I am thinking of using ReadyBoost to see if it will augment an old pc with 3gb ram Windows 7 x32 (old pc Asus AMD K8 3Ghz, ATI 256mb agp card) just to see if there will be a significant change or not. I have read the lengthy post about it and that got me interested really. Is there like a resource monitor or something that I can see how ReadyBoost is working or if it is working other than say, see if the usb is blinking...?
I am planning on using an idle Imation 8gb usb for it. All of it dedicated to ReadyBoost.
Any tips that I need to know or do prior trying it out..?
Any things that I need to look-out for?
How about logging-off and shutdown time? Will it be affected? I have made the registry tweak based on the tips here (from the default to 4 seconds). I was wondering how will it affect logging-off...
Can I leave the usb stick there and not remove it? If I leave it and I boot to XP(I bios boot Windows 7 and XP sp3 --separate hdd's), are there any issues that I need to know?
Appreciate the tips guys and thank you!
