Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

Bought ReadyCache when it first came out.  Day 2!  Worked great.  MB smoked but disks survived.  Went to load ReadyCache again, but I needed the Key!   Couldn't find the key for almost 2 years.  Finally found it in a book the day after I loaded Windows 10.  Have tried everything with no success.  

 

I read that it only took Microsoft 10 months to develop a working model of Windows 10.  If SanDisk has been working on a driver since January, SURELY they must be close!   ....or maybe they have abandoned the work?

 

Sure like to know one way or the other.  Is it coming?

I think the first step is to copy the Windows.old files back so that you can uninstall it.  The manual workaround works, the problem is that you have to remove the %tmp% junk so that you get a good installation.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

It seems this has been an issue for some time. I saw a January timestamp for this issue. I'd love to be able to use my hardware again. It worked very well prior to my upgrade. I am almost sorry I did it so fast.

 

 

Just adding squeaks to the wheel.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

I offically got a reply from Condusiv after waiting weeks and they said, "We have already released a new driver to Sandisk and it is their responsibility to release it." So I guess we're waiting on the release or Sandisk likes losing customers since their drive was doing so well. Anyway, I installed my ReadyCache in my Toshiba Satellite Laptop in place of my Optical DVD drive. I ran the installer as an Admin with Windows 7 Compatibility and it is up and caching just fine. Let's hope that Sandisk releases the Driver they already have soon!

With SanDisk unwilling or unable to come up with a driver for ReadyCache maybe Western Digital can get it done.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

I'm forced to use eBoostr. This **bleep** thing at least works properly under Win10 and it was never even designed for it. But ExpressCache, nope, can't even install that crap. This is so lazy Sandisk. And don't hope for WD to change much. Sandisk is just their division and it'll take ages for WD to afect it in any way. Especially for something as insignificent as those few thousand ReadyCache users...

Lenovo have released a WIndows 10 driver for their version of the product so why cant Sandisk.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

This issue has nothing to do with a Driver for Windows 10. I am not sure where that misconception came from.

 

The issue is that during the upgrade to Windows 10 the Microsoft upgrade tool removed critical components of expresscache which caused the software to not be fully installed. These components are still present in the Window.old folder. To uninstall the software there are manual uninstall instructions posted in this board. Once you have expresscache uninstalled you can simply reinstall it. No update is needed. 

 

If you do not have the windows.old folder on your computer contact sandisk support and they can send you a Beta tool you can use to uninstall expresscache. once that is done just reinstall expresscache.

 

Microsoft has now patched the Windows 10 upgrade tool so anyone who upgrades to windows 10 now will not see the issue.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

correct, you will need to manually uninstall expresscache before you can reinstall it. 

 

instructions for manually uninstalling expresscache

If you have deleted the Windows.old folder contact sandisk support and they can provide a beta uninstall tool that will remove expresscache. Once that is done you can reinstall expresscache normally.
