I have found it's not a good idea to not have it start with Windows. I got tired of seeing it pop up on the desktop so changed it not to start with Windows. So booted up next day and assumed all was working. Later during the day I missed not seeing it in my system tray so opened the program. Turned out it was not even working as I got a message saying no SSD was detected. I then clicked to start with Windows again and rebooted. This time the software opened on Desktop again and got another message saying cache had been reset all over again. This software still has bugs.

After 1.3.1 a new BUG appears; all my USB HDDs, Flash Cards, USB Sticks get errors at mount time on Windows 8.1.
I've already uninstalled the ExpressCache 1.3.1 software and the issue dissapear; after several restart, my system works fine, so I said: let go to install ExpressCache 1.3.1; bad choice, the issue with all my USB drives appears again. I've uninstalled ExpressCache again and my issue was fixed.
In the other hand I don't know why this product insist on perform, I don't know what task, but all drives reports access from the ExpressCache software all time.
Sorry Sandisk, many times I have advocated your product with other users, but at this time it's impossible. Please FIX the issues soon, I can't understand why I should to buy some product "unusable" due to software errors

As many others, I also consider the UI opening on desktop at boot a defect (not a bug ok, but it's a defect).
As you can see it's not only broadly unwelcome but it's hindering our troubleshooting and diagnostic capabilities.
And we are the customers and we paid for the product therefore I consider that our opinion REALLY matters
I had same issues reported by others (no warning/error messages), plus I had to remember that a new version was scheduled to release.
Obviously without the UI there's no automatic version update check...
I'm crossing my fingers and will try the upgrade...

I don't understand why Sandisk can't work with Condusiv and properly QA this EC software before releasing it.
Just address these issues and make everyone happy.
1) Not having the EC GUI display upon boot, but on demand, with option to minimize to the System Tray - *please*
2) ExpressCache.exe constant never ending activity on all drives continues in version 1.3.1
P.S. I still have not installed My ReadyCache and probably won't until everything posted is resolved.
What is the game plan, here? I have been waiting though 2 releases now. Seriously!
I want to use ReadyCache and thought that it is a proven product.
Please make things right.

Are SANDISK experts are looking at these posts?
New version 1.3.1 crashed my computer the day I installed it.
There seems to be some issue with coming out of standby/sleep as well.
It is unusable at this point. I had to uninstall ExpressCache.
Version 1.3.0 of ExpressCache worked better than this.
Other users, Please reply to this post if you have the installer for version 1.3.0.
Message to SANDISK: Cache SSD has great potential. But only if you folks can work out the problems with TERRIBLE SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT. May be you should approach some other developer. Condusiv guys keep coming up with new problems. They are not experts.
Also, caching method needs to be more intelligent so that its not caching the same things many times over - inducing cache resets frequently. If Condusiv guys say they can't come up with better solutions then its time to move on and let them go. May be this project with caching tech is way over their heads. No offense.
Also, SANDISK might think ReadyCache might reduce their SSD sales. But these are not competing products.
Competing (and seemingly functioning) product would be Hybrid drives. They work and they are made by a different company.
PLEASE TAKE THE ISSUES SERIOUSLY & ALSO PLEASE MAKE PPREVIOUS VERSIONS AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD.

I dumped the condusive crapware, formatted the readycache drive and copied my HD windows partition to the readycache SSD. My existing H/D is now used for caching and storing data. This method enables troublefree use with a noticeable performance gain as well as being able to access flashdrives and external USB H/D's properly.
As far as the software is concerned, it is NOT fit for purpose I do not appreciate being forcibly treated like a beta tester for something I did not subscribe to. I have more pressing things to do with my PC.
As for everyone else, good luck, and enjoy the beta testing

Just booted up today and software did not load with Windows 7 again (have it set to load with Windows). Had to manually open it. Software continues to be buggy. Issues I've dealt with.
1. When set to open with Windows, it continues to also open on Desktop in addition to appearing in the system tray. IT SHOULD NOT OPEN ON DESKTOP when set to load with Windows (it should only appear in the system tray)..
2. Sometime when setting it to NOT open with Windows the caching part does not activate. When opening software it gives a message saying no SSD can be found. Have to reboot with setting to open with Windows and this time boots up with software saying cache had to be reset back to the beginning.
3. Sometimes when Booting (setting to load with Windows), the software does not come up, have to open it manually.
4. Get Windows Explorer errors sometimes when closing folder windows, especially when turning off computer.
Sandisk and Condusiv need to get it together on this product.
