    Hey guys,

    I hope I'm posting in the right forum... In any case, i'll cut to the chase: I'm using Vista 32 bit on my Laptop, which is equipped with intel turbo memory (for those who don't know: It is a non-volatile type of flashmemory, which basically acts like a cache space for ReadyBoost Services, like ReadyBoot and ReadyDrive)... The problem is, after every boot Vista deletes the Readyboot data on the flash-memory and rewrites it; this causes "heavy" HDD load for at least 3 minutes (in which my PC slows down to around 40% of it's usual reactionspeed)...

    This is a very annoying issue, as the ReadyBoot feauture really makes boot-time as short as ~14 seconds, but then having to wait 3 minutes for it to recreate the readyboot data kinda kills the point.
    Now I totally understand MS does this because you usually would use a USB-Stick and if you would not delete the data it might be a security hazard, but what's the point of deleting it on a memory which is built inside of the PC?
    Any idea how to turn of this constant rewriting of Ready Boost?
    Aside from the annoyance of it happening, I bet it isn't the best to do for a flash memory...

    Thanks for your help peeps.
