Windows 7: Cache data drive (HDD) onto system drive (SSD)

Cache data drive (HDD) onto system drive (SSD)

I have a 128GB SSD with Windows and my programs on it. I also have a 3TB data drive with almost 500GB of data (and backup copies). I have about 30GB of my SSD spare and I was wondering if there was a program that would automatically cache frequently accessed files to spare space on the SSD, so they would appear to programs to be on the HDD but really be on the SSD for faster access. Any good software for this purpose that anyone knows of?

Bump, surely I'm not the only one that would like to do this.

There is caching mechanism for such a thing but not in the way you want. Ussing an SSD as cache for an HDD requires the full use of the SSD, not a portion.
