It often happen with us that whenever we try to
Install any utility or try to play any game then it
requires a large RAM than the currently installed in our system. I'm sharing a simple trick by which you can treat your USB drive as Random Access Memory and can fulfill such requirements.
This idea is also helpful in case you're running
any Virtual Operating System. By increasing your RAM you can boost up all the present
applications.
This trick actually varies with the Operating
System. Here, I'm sharing both of the Tricks

★For Windows 7/Vista★

*Insert your USB drive.
*Backup all its data and Format it using
FAT32(default) file system
*Right click on it > select properties
*click on ReadyBoost tab
*here click on Dedicate this device to ReadyBoost
*Adjust the size to be used according to your
need.
*Click Apply. That's it enjoy the hack now.:)


★ For windows XP★
*Insert your USB drive.
*Backup all its data and Format it using
FAT32(default) file system
*Right Click on My Computer.
*Click on Advanced tab then in the Performance
section click on Settings.
*In the new Box go to Advanced Tab.
*In the Virtual memory section click on Change
*Select your USB drive here, assuming its J:
*Set the size according to your requirement.
*Click Ok. Restart your PC to take effects.
