Again move to the Advanced tab on the Performance Options window. Have you tried monitoring ReadyBoost activity?

However, before you do so, I recommend that you first reformat the device.
However, it may not be able to deliver considerable performance in the case of newer hardware. Read on though to see how it works and how it could benefit your system. In the Run Command window, type services. For example, during sequential read operations, ReadyBoost will allow SuperFetch to use the cache on the hard disk, since the hard disk can outperform flash-based drives for these types of read operations.
