Readyboot and Superfetch

HP DV7 6143 CL Windows 7 home premium

 

Recently event viewer has been showing:

The maximum file size for session "ReadyBoot" has been reached. As a result, events might be lost (not logged) to file "C:\Windows\Prefetch\ReadyBoot\ReadyBoot.etl". The maximum files size is currently set to 20971520 bytes.

 

I see questions about this frequently and the normal fix is to change the default vaulue for MaxFileSize to 60 or so in

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\system\CurrentControlSet\Control\WMI\Autologger\Ready Boot

 

If the MaxFileSize is changed to 60 will the maximum file size be reached again?

 

Are there any Hotfixes for the issue?

 

Should Readyboot and Superfetch both be set to automatic in services?

I changed it here to 'Circular' logging to end those events and maybe keep ReadyBoot from stopping doing whatever it does.

Computer Management > Performance > Data Collect... > Event Trace ...  then double click the listed item for ReadyBoot .

The same error message popped up for me as well. However I could set the mode to circular logging after I stopped the data collector set. Just stop the data collector set, change the mode and restart it again.
