Windows 7: System cache - all drives?

System cache - all drives?

I have 3 hard drives:

- SSD drive for C:
- Mechanical drives for E: & F:

I have a system cache setup for the C: drive. Should you also have one set up for the E: & F: drives too?

Do you mean Virtual memory?

My suggestion:

Type this cmd
fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

It will give you one of two results, either a 0 or a 1. A zero indicates that TRIM is enabled correctly, a one means that it is not. If you have a TRIM-compatible SSD, but find that Windows 7 hasn't enabled the command, you can easily do so by running this command:

fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0

1)Move Virtual Memory to HDD
Computer-Properties-Advanced system settings
Performance settings - Advanced - Change
- C: None
- D: Custom sise: Max & Min = 16384- Set (make it 2x the memory size)

2)Startup and Recovery
Make diretory D:\System\Memory Dumps
Make diretory D:\System\Memory Dumps\Mini
Make diretory D:\System\Temp\user

Computer-Properties-Advanced system settings
Startup and Recovery settings

Small memory dump
Small Dump file: D:\System\Memory Dumps\Mini

Kernel memory dump
Dump file: D:\System\Memory Dumps

OK (Ingnore alert)

Environment Variables
Up Window
Temp - D:\System\Temp\user
TMP - D:\System\Temp\user
Down Window
Temp - D:\System\Temp
TMP - D:\System\Temp


- Create D:\Program Files and install on it Antivirus, antimalware, antispyware and very large programs.

Thank you for your detailed reply, although I am a bit unsure what the net effect of your suggestions are. What does your recommendations actually do?

I added a cache to my other drives and the speed of my system crawled. It was shocking! So I changed it back again. And I and getting crashes again, with the following message:

Windows successfully diagnosed a low virtual memory condition. The following programs consumed the most virtual memory: chrome.exe (4404) consumed 710475776 bytes, chrome.exe (8120) consumed 498884608 bytes, and firefox.exe (8564) consumed 467574784 bytes.
