Ready Cache - System Freezes under Windows 10

[ Edited ]

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 (and even after a fresh install of Windows 10) my computer would sometimes freeze after 30 minutes - latest after a couple of hours. By freeze I mean that the computer keeps running - but that I can no longer move the mouse or do anything except switching the computer off "the hard way".

 

So I started disconneting or switching off components to figure out which device might have a driver problem causing the freezes.

 

And guess what ... Ever since I disconnected ReadyCache from my mainboard the freeze problem disappeared.

 

Therefore two questions:

a) Anybody else here in the forum experiencing the same problem?

b) If its a known issue, will this be fixed with an upcoming ReadyCache driver version?

 

Needless to say, I would like to continue using my ReadyCache drive ...

try formatting the SSD and allow expresscache to start the cache over. This could be a problem with the cached data.

Tried that already with no luck ... unfortunately. Just connected ReadyCache after writing this post again to double-check (freshly-formatted). And boom ... after 10 minutes (Cache filled up to around 1GB) the harddrive starts to be 100% loaded and the computer freezes. Smiley Sad

Re: Ready Cache - System Freezes under Windows 10

Double-checked a few things again this week:

 

- Checked SMART values - disk is fine.

- If I use the SSD as regular volume also no crashes and system hangs (did that during the last two weeks).

 

But right after I reinstalled the Readycaching Software I got System Freezes again ... Its really frustrating.
