Sorry to dig this thread out...
I was wondering about caching, that is what i'm using actually with Intel Smart Response and with a SSD 60Gb & a 500Gb spinning hard drive.
I've used the Intel Solid State Drive Toolbox setting to optimize the Superfecht and so on for optimizing. Unallocated the necessary space for Caching on the SSD.
I did set up the Raid 0 and accelerate the Hard Drive with the SSD through IRST.
All went fine and all is fine. Both works like a champ, all bars are green!! The Apps and Boot are just so fast than before.
My main concern is about crashing....It'll just doesn't make it if the OS went to failed.
I'll not be able Start-up repair,
I'll not be able Repair install,
I'll not be able to use Diskpart,
I'll not be able to Reset passwords
I'll not be able to Restore points
and so on....in a normal way. (Is this made on purpose discouraging data thieves?
I mean the commands does works, but doesn't repair anything as the Hard drive is set to Raid and therefore not entirely visible.
If i have to service the computer, i will have to unaccelerated the Drive before in IRST and the spinning drive will be again visible to be serviced.
I know my next setup will be on a entire SSD if i encounter too much troubleshooting with Caching. As for now it does suits me well and i'm aware of the risk.
