    Just for the heck of it, I'll throw out a queston.

    My desktop as 2gb of ram. I have a gadget that shows cpu and ram usage. My ram NEVER goes higher then 60% used.. would I benefit from readyboost?

    Security scans takes seconds compared to minutes before
    That I would like to see. Although I agree that security scans do produce hard page faults (even with 4GBs of RAM) and would thus benefit from a faster pagefile device, but I have my doubts that it would be in an order of magnitude.
    Unfortunately I cannot test this because my systems and pagefiles are on SSDs-

    Well you're not thinking of how ReadyBoost actually works. It's not about your RAM usage.

    ReadyBoost helps cache files on the storage device, which is faster than having them stored on a hard drive, as the performance increase for random reads on the ReadyBoost device can be up to 80-100 times faster than what it would be for random reads on the hard drive.

    It benefits slower hard drives more, but if you have an old storage device that you don't need, then there's no reason to not just plug it in and setup for ReadyBoost.

    well, if its already been answered, but i couldn't find, is it possible to force a particular local hard drive partition to act as a readyboost device!?

    No, because the page file is already on your hard disk, it is just copied to the readyboost device so it can be accessed faster.
    Unless you have a SSD hard drive, no

    I tried but I think we cannot because this isn't considered a support forum, so.. +1 virtual rep!
