Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

@georgealon, EC isn't functioning as intended.

 

UPDATE: Cache reset on every cold boot (shut down>boot).

Noticed it soon after installed yesterday.

 

Just woke up (5am est) to test out slotmonsta's multi install multi reboot method.

Seeing the same results. Cache reset on every cold boot.

A normal restart retains cache and shows some speed changes.

 

Any help? Any guesses?

Are there users succesfully retaining cache/ec functioning as intended on cold boot on win10?

Damit !!!!, sorry to hear that, i really hoped the problem were solved now .....

I has not tried it yet, i was going to try Slotmonstas multi install after work today.

 

Now i have PrimoCache installed, and it works almost fine, but i have the same problem

as you have now, it resets almost every time i boot from cold and the cache has to build op from scratch

i really dont hope it is a Windows 10 problem with cache.

 

For me a cold boot takes over 2½ min. with the cache working 35 sec. so what a difference.

RedCache,

 

What do you refer as cold boot?

 

1. Use Windows menu->power->shut down                   ---> the cache should not reset.

2. Press the power button until the system shuts down  ---> the cache will definitly reset.

 

 

About the registry key:

 

Like I told you,  if the registry key is reset by Windows to a wrong value, it will create issues with the app and the drivers.

 

Here is what I would do at this point:

  

Plug the drive to a different system and see how the registry looks like.

       - If the registry key is correct, it means that your Windows 10 version or instance is changing the value.

       - If the registry key is also wrong, you should ask SanDisk to exchange that drive.

@georgealon By cold boot I meant pc shut down then booted (as opposed to using restart option from menu).

 

I don't have another system. No way to test it out.

In that case the cache will reset because it is not a normal or gracefull shut down. The cache will be corrupted if the system shuts down without notice.

Why is it not a graceful shutdown?

May be I wasn't clear enough.

Cold boot meant - using shut down from start menu. Then booting.

Hopefully this gets resolved soon, 4 more days and a whole lot of people are going to be upgrading all at once...

Re: Will ReadyCache have a driver for Windows 10?

@georgealon Subverted cache reset by disabling fast startup in power options in windows.

Cache is retained in cold boot. But system is much slower.

 

Boot speed isn't all that improved. I can see some improvement. But its slower than it was on win7.

Can it be checked if EC is actually working as intended on win10?

 

With fast startup enabled bootup was faster. But EC needs to be modified to retain cache.

I hope they are aware (and motivated to deliver a fix) of it.
