How to Use Your USB Flash Drive As Virtual RAM.

Today I´m gonna show you how to use a usb thumb drive as a virtual RAM device for your pc.
The thumb drive I used is a 2 Gb from Kingston. The size should be less than 4 Gb.
When you look at the steps below you will get it all
Step 1:
Rename your thumb drive  as “RAM DRIVE”, so you can see that it is the one which is used as RAM.

you can see the size of your flash drive (in this case 1932 Mb)
calculate: size of flash drive – 5 Mb
