Yes with some modified settings you can use your pen drive as a RAM

1) Connect your pen drive to your PC [pen drive should be at least 1 GB or if you having 4 GB then its better]

2) Allow PC what he is supposed to do,let system to detect pen drive.

3) After your PC finished with its detection work,you have to do some little

4) Right click on the My Computer and select the properties

5) Goto advanced and then performance setting then advanced then

6) Select pen drive and click on custom size " Check the value of space available "

7) Enter the same in the Initial and the Max columns

" You just used the memory of the PenDrive as a Virtual Memory "

8) Now restart your pc and enjoy your fast and super system

Re: Use Your Pen Drive as Ram

I had never tried or heard about using hard drive partition as RAM. Actually i dont think it is possible, probably not the primary hard drive. Just go on and try any portable drive with the same step mentioned above. If it works, let me know as well.

Wow, awesome!

With the muscle machine I have at home, I would never have to try it. Here at work, though, we still have a lot of crap laying around. In fact, I have an HP d220mt with only 1GB of Ram, and I happen to have an extra 4 GB thumb drive in my purse.

Time to have some fun!

Re: Use Your Pen Drive as Ram

I'm not really noticing a big difference on this older machine, but it's only got a Pentium IV processor to begin with, so other limitations are coming into play.

The thing is, it does work!

I think that PC Health Advisor is not for free and if you want to register it online then you will have to pay $$29.97. You can however use it for a trial period of 7 to 15 days gap time I suppose and it works in all Windows Operating System version as well. You can check ebay or amazon as well, if they might be selling at cheaper rate which can be affordable to you.

When you insert your USB flash drive in the windows 7 machine then into a usb port then windows 7 checks if it is fast enough to work with the Superfetch mechanism that ReadyBoost uses. If so,we are asked if we want the drive to be used for improving system performance. We can then choose to allocate part of a USB drive's memory to speed up performance and use the remainder to store files. The performance is drastically improved.In some cases a system whose memory is increased from 512MB to 1 GB through the external plugged device can see the speed improving from 11 sec to 2 sec.
