You should be entering that in an elevated cmd prompt, not trying to elevate winsat.

Numbers are fun..
When you use cache apps. anyone use them?

Disk Cache, Hybrid Disk Cache and RamDisk

FancyCache Overview

i know it ain't going to make your SSD that much better, but sure makes the numbers pretty

That looks interesting. I am going to try it on my Windows 8 to go which is on a USB3 stick.

I was looking at those apps a while ago, never did try them.

Do you notice any performance improvement?

Dave, unfortunately it does not install in Windows 8. You get a message that the OS is unsupported - and that's the end of it. Would have loved to try it on my stick.

Thanks! This worked...I don't know what I was doing wrong before....

If you have the Intel chipset then I understand you may get better performance using Intel drivers in place of the MS drivers (msahci). Others may care to comment.

Actually, you can skip the -V argument and just run Winsat disk for a more 'optimal' output for the thread. It appears you're missing some data at the end to make the proper estimate. Here's my WD Raptor 150Gb at work:

That way you can see access time for reads, writes, sequential speeds, blah-de-blah. WinSat also properly puts Windows into the "high performance" state and submits disk access requests at the highest available priority in the I/O stack. It gives a far more thorough and repeatable set of metrics than most of the other apps.
