Use your Pen Drive USB as RAM

Today I will explain you how you can easily use your USB as RAM. So, RAM (Random Access Memory) is the memory which computer uses to work on different processes. The more RAM you have, the faster the process is. Usually, these days the computers come with atleast 1 GB of RAM. But, that’s not enough to run some High Memory consuming softwares. But sometimes you are short of RAM and your system hangs. Especially while playing the Games as it require a big amount of RAM to play smoothly. I have faced many problems with Games on my computer due to RAM. So, here I am going to give you an excellent trick to how you can use your USB as RAM. The process explained below is for Windows 7 OS. For other, it might be slight different.

Step 1: Go to Start followed by Control Panel.

Step 2: Click on System and Security, then select System. See below screenshot.

Step 3: Now select Advanced system settings from the left side.

Step 4: The dialog box will open in Advanced tab, click on Settings, then go to Advanced tab.

Step 5: From there, you will see Virtual Memory, just click on Change…

Step 6: In Windows 7, the box Automatically manage paging file size for all drives comes prechecked, so we have to uncheck it to perform the operation.

Step 7: Now, from the local drives list, click on your Pen Drive or USB letter, eg. In my case I have E drive as my USB drive. If you have 4 GB Pen Drive, then enter 700 in Initial Size and 3072 in Maximum size and hit Set. See below screenshot.

Step 8:  Restart your system and every thing must work fine 🙂
