    Default what is the lifespan of USB flashdrives used for readyboost?

    Does anyone using USB flashdrives for Readyboost

    Please comment on the lifespan of their flashdrives when used for such purposes? Since rams incur a heavy amount of read/write cycles.

    I have been using my Kingston 4GB DataTraveler Mini Slim USB Flash Drive for just under 2 years daily on a netbook and it's as good as new, no signs of wear or any performance issues.

    I would not worry about the lifespan. It will probably last forever - especially as Ready Boost where it does not get a lot of use.
