Usb FlashDrive as Virtual Memory

you would be better off buying a cheap SSD and using that for your pagefile. besides the fact that it doesn't sound like you can use use the flashdrive you currently have for it since you need readyboost for it to be usable as a pagedisk

Before I get started I am fine if this kills a couple of usb drives over time. Also I know it is not super efficient I only need this for cities:skylines which can use upwards of 40Gbs worth of page file.

After attempting to use readyboost (No luck, Not supported) I went into the virtual mem settings in the control panel only to find the usb drive is not their either after trying (unsuccessfully) to enable write caching on the drive which windows says does not support it. I am stuck. Ideas?

 

 

I could trim down my 5000 assets for the game but I realllyyyyy dont want to.
