Performance Information and Tools
in the left pane, Advanced tools
View performance issues in event log
Click on the "Information" categories on the top left side and in the bottom
"General" tab it will say what operation was completed.
You will see an entry for the time at which you shutdown/rebooted that says
" A ReadyBoost cache was successfully deleted on the device (USB FLASH
At your boot up time you will see an entry that reads:
"A ReadyBoost cache was successfully created on device (USB FLASH DRIVE) of
1960MB ( I'm using a 2GB flash drive so this size will vary depending on the
size of your flash drive)
Another thing I notice is this message:
"A defrag has completed. A boot plan will be calculated soon. Defrag
timestamp (UTC) :3/21/2007 5:36:03 PM "
So it appears to mean that the ReadyBoost cache is being defragged on it's
I have my computer set to defrag the hard drives once a month on the 1st so
I know this defrag is not controlled by my settings. Must be built in to
the ReadyBoost program?
