Re: Help Configure PrimoCache

L2 cache is designed to accelerate slow drives by a fast drive. So if you only want to accelerate the drive C: and H:, there is no need to use L2 since these drives are on a very fast SSD. For the L1 cache size, generally speaking, the larger the cache size, the better the cache performance. However...

Re: Should I dedicate an entire SSD (256 GB) as L2 cache?

PrimoCache so far is not so smart. It also depends on SSD hardware. For intel optane series, it's quite safe to use the entire SSD. Others we are not sure. For safety you may use 80%~90% of an SSD.

Re: Almost a year since last update?

We are preparing the version 4.0. I'm sorry for the delay in new version. Most features and problems remaining to be implemented or solved are quite complicated and require big changes on the program's code architecture. So we have to be very careful about these changes and do lots of feasibility st...

Re: Splitting SSD for L2 cache/ aborted writes/ PerfectDisk

But PC DOES delay shutdown until cache is cleared? Say I have just completed 10 GB write that goes to 10GB SSD write cache and immediately selected shutdown- is it safe? Yes, PrimoCache makes sure that all deferred write-data will be written on normal shutdown. It's safe. For unexpected shutdown ca...

Re: Somthing toward a "sticky:" Suggestiion for a configuration discussion for various PC usage patterns

So whats could be the best usage for Primo Cache based on this scenario? Since your target drives are all SSDs, you may only use the level-1 (RAM) cache. If your Windows OS doesn't contain any personal data and well backed-up, you may also enable Defer-Write which will increase writing performance ...

Re: Looking for some guidance on configuring PrimoCache

I'm sorry for the late reply because recently we are kind of busy. :( 1. Should I set up a single task for my boot SSD and my RAID1 4TB hard disk? It's up to your goal. Cache content in a cache task is independent of, that is not affected by, each other. This means that if you use separate cache tas...

Re: L1 Cache Writes Still Occur When R/W Cache Set to 100% Read

I think the most efficient way this should work is when L1 write data is evicted from cache it should be evicted to L2. This way you are not doing dual writes until they are needed and the L1 cached write data does make it to the L2 cache but not until it needs to be. In most scenarios, this does. ...

Re: SMART error using PrimoCache in Windows 10 1903

Could you upload a screenshot of your PrimoCache main dialog which shows the cache configuration and statistics for our reference. Thanks. We didn't notice this kind of issue and receive similar reports before. We searched the Internet about this error and find the following link. https://forums.unr...
