After instalation, most problems of 1.3.1 remained on my SB850 board (I’ve tested this system >12h prime stable multiple times). The delayed boot with cache >20GB, and a tendency for a system crash on boot when cache is about - 28GB filled (stuck loading windows with hdd led on, both on w7 sp1 or w8.1 x64), or even stuck when idle after some hours (probably when ready cache is doing some maintenance). Excluding drives doesn’t make a difference for this behaviour, but disconnecting the SSD to make Readycache stop working restores system stability.
Right after setting cache to only 16GB (and also excluding 2 hdd I don’t want cached), I haven’t had any problems when cache is nearly filled , either the usual freezed boot delay or system crashes for the last two weeks.
Couldn’t this be some Sandforce firmware issue that causes trouble with an almost full drive with some SATA controllers, and Readycache simply triggers it?
I don’t seem to have “cache has been reset” problems. When it happens it’s usually due an understandable reason that triggers it (a manual or scheduled disk defrag to cached drives, updates on boot, large file changes, etc.).
Also to look in too, if not solved already, when I installed 1.3.0 on this pc that had 4 hdds with 7 visible partitions Readycache wouldn’t work. Cache would always stay at 0.07GB. After reducing the number of partitions (by merging on the same drives) to 4, it started caching normally.
