CacheList configures Microsoft ReadyBoost™ flash storage devices that are used as supplemental memory caches. This is typically used for devices that have been integrated with the computer, such as an internal flash device or solid-state drive (SSD).
CacheList can contain up to eight Cache settings that represent a single ReadyBoost cache on the computer that you configure.

The following XML output example shows a configuration of two ReadyBoost devices. On this sample system, the primary hard drive is disk 0 (not shown in the XML), and the two ReadyBoost devices are Disk 1 and 2. On the first device, a 500-megabyte ReadyBoost cache is created, leaving the remainder of the device space for storage. The second device is entirely used by the ReadyBoost cache.
