Windows 7: Write-caching


26 Aug 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional X64
 
 
Write-caching

I have all my external drives set to "quick removal" option, so I don't have to use the "safe-removal" option.

On my internal drives, I have it set to "Enable write caching."

It says that a power outage could cause data loss.
Since I always use the "sleep" option, is this option safe?

Thanks,

Paul

Hello Paul,

Unless you have power outages often, then I wouldn't worry about it set like that.

Thanks Brink,

I've had about two outages in 5 years.
I'll follow your advice.
