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

- Say SSD write cache has not been written completely to disk because of system shutdown or power failure. Can I expect write to be completed on next power up, so that the state on HDD matches the state on SSD? Sorry, so far no. The data will be lost as the ram cache. But PC DOES delay shutdown unt...

I'm considering reserving 5-10% of the capacity (48-96 GB) but honestly I can't find any noticeable slowdowns in day to day tasks so far.

Or should I rather pro...

Re: What SSD for my L2 cache scenario?

I see, makes sense. So, assuming I want to cache my "daily" and "multimedia" disks only (both around 75% full; where data set used in some time period is usually limited to tens of gigabytes, and over time slowly migrates to another tens of gigabytes and so on): - Can I go just with budget Plextor M...

Hello, I am trying to determine what would be the best SSD for L2 cache for my scenario - seeking generally increased system responsiveness and shortened access times, not any ultra-dramatic changes: - all data disks (non-boot) - 1st drive 1.5 TB - "daily computer use" in read/write scenarios. Inclu...
