Your computer might me responding slow. You might not even have minimum requirements to run your OS. Your PC may be performing slower but you don’t want to loose the current OS and use older supported version. You don’t have budget to upgrade your system, especially your RAM. You might also be searching for better alternatives to increase your virtual memory or RAM, for example you want to increase Virtual Memory (Paging from hard disk). But you are not satisfied with these and you want something new, newer. If this is the case similar to you then I have a better solution for you. I previously posted about increasing your Graphics Card Memory Capacity. Convert your USB Flash Drive to RAM without any hassle.
eBoostr is a tool supported for windows to increase your RAM capacity. To make it work, all you need is a USB Flash Drive (Memory Card/ SD card/ Pen Drive/ or even Hard Drive) with some space available to be used by eBoostr. There are several requirements to run eBoostr:
- Microsoft Windows XP
- USB 2.0 port version or external card-reader
- USB flash drive or flash card with at least 256 MB free space
eBoostr makes the cache of your frequently used applications on your USB Flash drive. In simple terms, it makes your programs load faster than ever. By doing so, eBoostr will help to reduce the Hard Disk access which considered slower, especially on notebook’s Hard Disk as compared to USB Flash Drive speed.
However eBoostr doesn’t seems to give much improvement on the performance of heavy applications like MS Word, MS Excel, Photoshop, Flash, etc.
This program is recommended only if you don’t have any means to increase your RAM capacity (may be its due to your budget or may be you don’t have any RAM slot available in your PC). This program is also recommend especially for Notebook. After all, a real RAM performs better than a USB disk cache, but it exception as you need to increase your PC performance, who cares!!!
