Use your USB 2.0 storage device as RAM in XP system!! ( Download of the month: April ‘09)

What could be more interesting for a XP system than the title of the Dancer-07-junepost? Xp systems are not very resource hungry boxes, but with time, you tend to feel an urge to upgrade the RAM of your system! sometimes due to the installation of antivirus softwares and the other due to huge bulky image/video editing applications that you feel are greatly productive but also, too heavy for your system to run properly, your system feels the need of more memory! Isn't there a solution to the memory problem for the system at a lower expense than buying a new RAM chip?

Microsoft has supposedly provided a solution to the users, in windows vista where they can plug in their USB 2.0 compliant storage device and use a part of its memory as RAM. The technology is named Readyboost and is publicised as one of the new efficient feature of the system. But what if you only have a XP system and have no plans to upgrade to vista just to taste what Readyboost is all about? and neither do you have enough cash to spend on a new memory chip? Is there a way out???

off course there is! The application is named Eboostr and it proved to be very efficient in increasing system performance and accelerating applications in our tests at WB testlabs! 4-24-2009 12-34-10 AM


If you have a high speed USB flash drive, then it will be very good in accelerating apps. If you manage to get your hands on a dual-connector Portable HDisk then you PC will be flying in no time! Do not forget to reboot your system after installing it

Out n Out, this is extremely good and efficient product which enables you to get the most out of your system! Although the application is available for a fee. But the trial version is good enough for testing the application and the limitation it levies is that the trial version only works for 4 consecutive hours, After which you have to reboot the system for it to work again! Highly recommended!!!
