@TJuTZu A fresh install may not work out for you either.
Some users probably (and slotmonsta) claimed to have installed a working EC on a fresh install of windows 10.
But I couldn't get it work. EC doesn't recognise the drive.
User @onedollar couldn't get it to work. Seems like drive recognition is a wider problem.
I'm out of ideas. Let's see if someone figures it out.

RedCache You are propably right. On my last attempt to uninstall and reinstall EC worked on me, but it could be bacause there were some residues of old installation still on my PC and according to problems others are having by following my steps it was pure luct to get it working at all.
I will update my old post and state out that the procedure will not propably work.
Looks like it is not possible to update old posts on this forum.

I have been keeping up with posts concerning Ready Cache and each day I get more frustrated reading the posts. This absolutely proves how badly hardware and software companies treat customers after you've purchased their products.

@edd33, A clean install creates a different issue. The software doesn't recognize the RC drive so can't install. Myself and probably one or more people experienced this.
You are on point about the way sandisk is managing the whole thing.
Its weird though. They get high score for their other products. They are one of the largest flash makers.
But the readycache product, at least as appears to be, is run by a bunch of interns (or worse - old timey hires who are not really qualified to hold on to their jobs anymore - because can't deliver).
These are just expressions of frustrated customers. But the disappointment in this company is very real.
I am most likely to join you on your way out of the sandisk ecosphere. I have a Samsung 850 pro on my desk right now. Have had it for a few months. Didn't want to use it. Its too fancy for my cheap build. But sandisk fails to deliver again. I have gotten sick of it. (I still don't understand.. in this day and age.. they can't manage to deliver timely updates/fixes. Its as if they are flinging pigeons at each other to communicate with condusiv. Aren'y either of these companies able to hire capable tech guys who can get sh*t done?)
Like yourself and others, I will be highly hesitant to reach for a sandisk product in the future. What a shame.

I haven't posted on here for while and still see the frustration that this issue has caused.
I really do believe that SanDisk are working and testing a solution with Condusiv ( they have written some of the best disc caching and optimising software in the market). I am sure that they don't want to upset us even more by releasing something that doesn't work.
I am currently giving SanDisk until the end of this month to provide us with a Windows 10 ReadyCache solution.
know companies like Amazon are advertising the SanDisk ReadyCache product without saying it won't work on Windows 10 after upgrade, so the EU advertising regulators with be very interested in this situation. Similarly Maplin, Scan, NewEgg, Walmart, BestBuy etc. don't highlight that it will not work after you upgrade to Windows 10 - they actually say "minimum system Windows 7!!
Given that the advertisements for this product don't explain the issues with it under Windows 10, I am sure that the advertising regulators in various countries would be very interested in the issues that we have seen with the ReadyCache product.

My PC is Lenovo ThinkPAD e430. It has optional small size of SanDisk mSATA SSD in it.
I modified the PC a bit that I replaced origiunal DVD drive to HDD as D:.

The ExpressCache software looks for the ReadyCache drive in the registry. Can you check your registry and see if you see this entry?
ExpressCache is looking for one of the two following sub strings:
Here is the registry on Windows 10 (item 5):

Just wanted to updated users that are waiting on the Windows 10 update tool. The Windows 10 update fix is currently in qualification. We still expect to release by the end of the month.
