Re: Win 10 Compact feature: Better Compatible? compression!

...if you use UltimateDefrag, you can just right click on folder and select defragment, and it will only defragment the files in that folder. I don't know of any other defrag ultility that will let you defragment just one folder CCleaner's Defraggler is one (free) alternative offering this. However...

Re: L2 Striped Reading

The feature would not be complex as its just off loading read operations to the lower tier when the active time on l2 is 100%...similar drives have been tested before with Intel VROC raid 0, etc. Sadly they increase the latency by a decent amount. If Intel's VROC increases latency (with hardware su...

Re: L2 Striped Reading

...raiding the 2 drives would results in lower performance... What type of RAID did you use for your testing? Windows software, motherboard or dedicated RAID controller card? Implementing this feature request would not only seem complex (each drive would need to be benchmarked to determine best spe...

Re: Improved Cache Algorithm

PrimoCache currently uses an LRU (Least Recently Used) algorithm to determine which blocks to discard when full. Older versions (2.x if I recall correctly) gave the choice between LRU and LFU (Least Frequently Used) algorithms. It would be interesting to hear from support why LFU was removed, as the...

Re: Full Boot Drive into RAM?

Steveb,

For storing a whole volume in RAM, Primo Ramdisk would probably be a better choice. You can run it alongside PrimoCache.

Re: Primo RamDisk

Blizzard1234, You specified above that you were running Windows 10 Pro - could you confirm if you are running the 32-bit or 64-bit version? (32-bit requires the correct PAE settings for Primo Ramdisk to function). Prior to your crash, what were you using the ramdisk for, and did everything appear OK...

Re: Using Primocache with Winbtrfs RAID0

Welcome to the forums Byolock, Could you post a screenshot showing the PrimoCache volume selection screen? The entries listed there could provide useful information. Also, what RAID level are you using? If you're running RAID-1 (mirroring) then reads and writes will only go to one drive (with the Wi...

Re: Primo RamDisk

Support will doubtless pick this thread up, once the working week starts. Do you have any idea why your PC crashed (any clues in Event Viewer, etc) and how long after the install of Primo Ramdisk did it happen? Have you previously installed any other ramdisk? As a last resort, I have listed Primo Ra...

Re: Primo RamDisk

Using Device Manager, try right-clicking on the Primo Ramdisk Controller, select Update Driver, then choose "Install software automatically". If that doesn't work then try disabling and re-enabling the controller, then re-running the Primo Ramdisk application. If it still returns the same ...

Re: Primo RamDisk

Welcome to the forums Blizzard1234, First of all, did Primo Ramdisk work initially and then stop - or did it never work on your system? If it worked initially: Which version of Windows are you running? If Windows 10, have you enabled Core Isolation/Memory Integrity? (if so, you need to disable them)...
