Yes mate it took some at times drastic things to be done but nice to be back posting again but seeing that I am now finally retired just another job on the VERY long list of want and need to do's that I never had time for before. Trouble is it took a broken leg to make me see the writing on the wall

What if you have several portable hard drives that you only connect from time to time, and your computer has three USB ports and it's completely random which HD you plug into which port? Surely the computer doesn't remember my 5 portable drives and 3 USB sticks X 3 ports = 24 combinations, and each one's write caching setting -? Does Win 7 keep caching disabled, or enabled, by default? I want it disabled for all my external sources.

Hello catalogue,

Usually, write caching is disabled by default for removable media. You can double check to make sure though.

Write Caching
So, it's time I asked a question. I've got this awesome little 7eeePC you've probably read about as I babble on about it like a schoolgirl in many of my posts and I'd like to show of it's WEI score to convince folks it's not quite as castrated as some have insinuated. Only, the machine will not...
Write caching
Ok, so my hard drive in ACHI mode does not allow me to enable write caching but in compatibility mode it does. Should I enable write caching? Also this whole thing about memory loss is bugging me on what they are talking about. I have a laptop with a battery and mostly has power. But what if...
