  1. Readyboost not available after reinstalling Windows


    I have a little Dell 11 with an eMMC drive for the primary hard drive. It is 32GB, and frankly, slow. For some time, I was using a MicroSD card and readyboost to help out a bit. And it worked well enough.


    Then I had to reinstall Windows. And now Windows is telling me that it won't allow readyboost, as the machine is too fast. Which is crap. It is still the same slow eMMC drive, on the same slow laptop,and performs just as it did out of the box. Is there a way to force Windows to either retest for readyboost, or force windows to enable it?

    :)

    Regarding Windows ReadyBoost

    readyboost is a step between memory and page file, that can help prevent slowdown when windows accesses the HDD.

    ruski missed a key point to readyboost - its not about MB/s throughput, its about lowered access times for those small files that are constantly being accessed

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I will assist you with this.

    ReadyBoost can speed up your computer by using storage space on most USB flash drives and flash memory cards.

    ReadyBoost uses the Superfetch service that should be enabled and set to "Running" and "Automatic".

    For ReadyBoost to effectively speed up your computer, the flash drive or memory card should have at least 1 gigabyte (GB) of available space. If your drive or card doesn't have enough available space for ReadyBoost , you'll see a message telling you to free
    some space on it. For best results, use a flash drive or flash memory card with at least double the amount of available space as the amount of memory (RAM) in your computer.

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if it helps.

    1. Plug the flash drive into a USB port on your computer.

    2. In the AutoPlay dialog box, choose Speed Up My System.

    3. The flash drive’s Properties dialog box appears with the
    ReadyBoost tab upfront.

    4. Click on ReadyBoost tab.

    5. Choose the Use This Device option.

    6. Click OK.

    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
