How does a cluster size affect the readyboost function? The default cluster size is 2^12 bytes. What about higher order? I think of 2^13 bytes or 2^14 bytes? What is better ExFat or NTFS for ReadyBoost?
Larger cluster size will be better, but will mean more wasted space. It might also help to have the driver formatted as ExFAT.
A larger cluster size means that more data can me read/written from the drive at the same time, increasing speed.

Then the system will create the ReadyBoost file.
If you run virtual machines, configure their preferences to "allow some VM swap memory".
