Readyboost and Windows 8

I am trying to use Readyboost with Windows 8 to speed up my relatively slow laptop. It works fine but I have two questions.

1. Does it make much difference?

2. How come I am limited to 4Gb Readyboost since the USB stick is 16Gb?

Thanks in anticipation.

eBoostr is a far better alternative. Give it a go.

I've tried ready boost in the past but never saw much speed improvement using it.

Maybe your drive is formatted in FAT32. Format to NTFS and enjoy all 16 gigs

Thanks. I didn't think that it was limited to 4Gb. I'll try NTFS formatting and let you know how I get on.
