What is emdmgmt.dll?

Part of ReadyBoost Service by Microsoft

What is it?

Provides support for improving system performance using ReadyBoost. ReadyBoost uses the Superfetch service and an USB flash drive or memory card as memory cache and performs boot optimization. If you do not use an USB flash drive in this manner, you can disable ReadyBoost, but a negitive impact on performance could result, depending upon the amount of memory installed. I recommend to leave the Superfetch service on Automatic.
Description of emdmgmt.dll from Microsoft
ReadyBoost is a disk cache component of Microsoft Windows, first introduced with Microsoft's Windows Vista in 2006 and bundled with Windows 7 in 2009. It works by using flash memory, a USB flash drive, SD card, CompactFlash or any kind of portable flash mass storage system as a cache. An internal SSD can also be used for increased performance, but has the same limitations as smaller flash drives (such as 32 GB per cache file).
(emdmgmt.dll is a system file that is installed with Windows)

Autoplay handler - emdmgmt.dll is typically associtated with identifier name of MSCreateEmdCache with and identifier of SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\ CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\Handlers\MSCreateEmdCache. Autoplay will scan removable media, when it arrives, looking for media content types (music, graphics, or video). When a removable media arrives, Windows determines what actions to perform by evaluating the content and comparing it to registered handlers for that content. An application will register a handler for Autoplay events associated with a media type.

When the system detects that the user is downloading an external program that runs as part of the Windows user interface, the system searches for a digital certificate or requests that the user approve the action. If you enable this policy, Windows only starts approved programs.
