How to turn on SysMain for readyboost ?




After reading many forums and other sites, I decided to write a post on sysmain for readyboost. If you want to turn on Ready boost, you will first need to turn the Sysmain service back on.

Have you connected  pendrive and tried to use Ready Boost, to increase its performance. And it says  that  " This device cannot be used for ReadyBoost. "



Well, it's a simple problem, try using the steps below

1. Type Services, in Start. Right click on it and start it as " Run as Administrator ".


2. Locate the file Superfetch, click on " Properties ". 


3.  Under General, Check the Service Status : " Stopped ".  Make sure you set up Startup type : " Automatic " and click on " start


A pop up box opens, which normally take 20 sec to complete. That's it press okay once the service status is " started ".
  
Now Right click on pen drive or memory card, go to "properties" and click on " Ready Boost "


Tick the Option " USE this device" and check how much MB does windows recommend for Optimal performance. " IF you are using a 8Gb stick then dedicate 4Gb to it." 

Once you are done with the procedure, you will find a file named "Ready Boost" in your pendrive. 

That's it. Thanks for reading the post. If you are still facing problem, then click on this link to read the post : Readyboost Not Working

  17. I fail to understand why people insist on changing the names of things? Why does the readyboost tab call it "sysmain" when there is no such service, its called Superfetch. I am a software engineer myself and have argued this point time and time again with the leads. They use whatever nerdy name pops into their heads to refer to something, even using the invented shorthand name in emails. Its dumb people! Pick a name and stick with it! How would anybody ever figure this out (sysmain=superfetch) or is in intuitively obvious to everyone except me.
