Have you tried it? Does it actually work?

I know that, but it looks like a scam to me, and it'd be pretty easy to reproduce a scam :)

I can't say whether or not eBoostr is a scam.  Is Vista's ReadyBoost a scam?  I don't know the answer either, since I don't use Vista.  It looks like my request caused you'll some hiccups.  I apologise.

Why do you clasify it a scam?

you're welcome, PhilB. i was just making a subtle comment in general to move discussions to the eBoostr thread since this thread was about creating a clone of eBoostr. ;)

PhilB66: i didn't say it was a scam, i have no idea. But i thought this would have to be something implemented at OS level, and since XP doesn't have support for it...
