Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

ReadyCache was working on my development / test PC under 8 and 8.1 but will not install on Windows 10 Technical Preview.

I tells me I need to upgrade my OS to 7 or later.

 

I am using ReadyCache on my other PC's running 7 and 8.1 but will be upgradeing several of them to 10 when it is released.  Do I need to trash these and buy some high capcity conventional SSD's?

 

If you are woking on a driver for 10, I would volinteer to test it in the preview and report my finding direct to the Sandisk team.

Windows 10 support is planned however we do not have any estimate for a release date at this time.

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

Just got build 10041

Good news!

This is the first build of then that lets me install readycache software.

It does start with 0.07 used and increase the amount used as I read from the HDD.

It does make booting faster after three reboots and seems to work up to a point.

 

Bad News!

If I let the PC sit unused for an hour or two, then the cache goes back to 0.07 used and the system is very slow untill the cache fills up again. This has happened about once a day since I got it running on 10. Sort of sounds like win 10 might be directly accessing the HDD during some maintenance or update that is performed when the system is idle.

 

Any help or news from Sandisk would be warmly welcomed.

Meanwhile a few months have passed and the Windows 10 release is coming much closer ...

 

Is there already a Release Date available?

Well now that Windows 10 has been released for a few days, is there ANY update on when the Readycache will work with Windows 10?

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

I have done an upgrade from Wiundows 8.1 Update 1 to Windows 10 Pro and it has really broken the ReadyCache software / driver. After the upgrade I went to check on ReadyCache as I had switched the caching off while upgrading. What I found was that ExpressCacheApp (1.3.2) was still their but the ExpressCache driver 1.3.112.0 was no longer there. I tried to un-install the ReadyCache software but that failed Error code 1603. I then tried to re-install the ReadyCache software  but that also failed as well as the installation process tries to un-install the ReadyCache software first which I already knew would fail.

 

I have contacted SanDisk support but I am not confident in them fixing it. I have given them unitl next Friday to fix it and after that I will be lloking at my option to force them o fix it. I am sure there are a lot of unhappy SanDisk customers out their because they implied when I "chatted" with them that they hadn't really tested the upgrade process - basicall they said Windows only came out two days ago and they are now looking into the issues....

 

I am not at all happy with them at this moment in time.

You wrote the above in January (‎01-30-2015 05:08 PM), surely SanDisk should have developed a driver and software that would work by now for Windows 10? I know that you have to work with Condusiv Technology for part of your software but their products that I have on some of my machines work with no issues at all and didn't get broken when I did my upgrade. Obviouly you having sorted out the Windows 10 driverst from my previous post about my experience of moving to Windows 10 Pro from Windows 8.1 update 1. Currently your product is not fit for purpose under Windows 10!!!

I had the exact same thing happen to me, since then I've been lurking in this thread hoping for an update.

I have raised a case with SanDisk on this issue and I surgest that anybody that has this issue does the same.

 

I have also pointed out under UK and EU law they are very close to this product now being unfit for purpose.

 

I have also raised this into Microsoft as well - VP level

 

Hopefully they will sort this out very quickly.
