    Using Vista or Win7: Is it better to put the page file on flash stick or hard-drive?

    SyncroScales Level 1

      Hi.

       

      Using Vista on a laptop. When I put in a flash stick it says I can use ReadyBoost.

       

      Just wondering: When setting up a system is it better to put the pagefile onto a hard-drive or flash stick/card (using that ReadyBoost)?

       

      Vista has that 4Gb limit on 1 device only, and Win7 has a much much higher limit on multiple devices if I remember correctly.

       

      Is there advantages for a HDD or SSD to get the pagefile compared to flash sticks/cards?
