Should ReadyBoost drive be indexed?

  1. Should I leave my ReadyBoost drive set ti "Index for faster searching"? Is
    this a waste of resources?

    No. It's a paging file.

  3. No, I'd turn it off. There really is nothing for it to index.

    I suspect it makes little difference whether you leave indexing as is or
    turn it off especially if you do not use the drive for the second purpose of
    storing some file on it. Windows will not attempt to index the cache.
    However, if you do use the drive to store some files, indexing will occur.
