Re: MS Malware Protection Copy Accelerator Utility

Thanks for taking a peek at the process. I haven't terminated it manually yet (not even sure you can since it's a protected process), and haven't experienced any negative effects on the system or caching while Defender is running. But given MS has it in the W10 OS, it seems fair to assume it'll make...

MS Malware Protection Copy Accelerator Utility

Recently I noticed an item in my list of running tasks. The executable is named "MpCopyAccelerator.exe", and it resides in the "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows Defender\Platform\4.18.2108.7-0" folder. The description on it reads: "Microsoft Malware Protection Copy Accelerat...

Re: A theory about a problem that has always existed

Primocache can try to alleviate write bottlenecking when it uses write coalescing, but on a fragmented drive that feature is going to be reduced in effectiveness quite a bit. Best practice on external spinners may be to set an automated defrag routine a few times a week to try and help writes later ...

Re: New here. Here's setup, what more do you suggest.

How much data are you caching between your C and D drives? Even if you only have 1TB populated between the two, your data coverage rate is around 3.1% (32/1024), which means depending on how much data you access regularly your hitrate may suffer and the cache performance along with it. Typically jus...

Re: SD Card transfer rate

Welcome to the forums Sheldon. It should work well with an external drive, provided that drive uses a standard volume type recognizable by Windows. i.e. FAT32, NTFS, etc. If it has a proprietary software suite & driver that changes things a little, but if you're copying from your local NVMe to t...

Re: Need Advice on Very Low Hit Rate

Hit Rate simply relies on the same data (blocks) being read multiple times, and there being enough cache space to hold most used blocks. Are you using prefetch at Windows boot? It can help quite a bit to keep hit rate higher. Hard to say on the database volume, since it also has L2 caching. But the ...

Re: Level 2 cache not increasing speed

You're testing two layers at the same time - local drive access and network speed. Never do this, since it mucks up results and never tells you what's going on. On the machine you have Primocache installed: use CrystalDiskMark to test drive speed when Primocache is disabled, then when it is enabled....

Re: GpuRamDrive: GPU VRAM as RAMdisk: Game changer!?

It *may* be a good idea, but I think InquiringMind mentioned it should be for a separate product which I would agree with, or at best an add-on product. And the market segment for it would be much smaller than what Primocache currently has, so the idea of developing it as a paid product (for a demog...

Re: [2021-01-30] PrimoCache 4.1.0 released!

I use windows fastboot but don't wanna disable it because it is really usefull to reduce windows 10 starting times. That right there is going to cause ongoing issues for you for as long as you leave it enabled, no matter where your bluescreens are coming from. So in fact, you have two issues: a mis...
