Re: what is HDD express cache?

Hi,

 

See the following video clip - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZFU4cDx_5A

 

ExpressCache is technology created by Condusiv Technologies (formerly Diskeeper Corporation) that allows your computer to bootup 3X faster.

 

You can read further details about it here - http://www.condusiv.com/partners/oem/technologies/expresscache

 

Hope this helps!

Re: what is HDD express cache?

Is it possible to install Express Cache software on any other Lenovo notebook, like T520 with mSATA SSD?

Re: what is HDD express cache?

Our ExpressCache technology absolutely improves boot-time - but I'd like to point out that it offers many additional benefits as well - such as improvement application performance.

ExpressCache is software that leverages the speed of a small SSD as a caching device, coupled with a computer's existing HHD to enable the performance of a pure SSD system at the fraction of the cost.

Re: express cache ssd e430

Follow these steps

1) Uninstall ExpressCache

2) In Disk Management, delete both partitions in the mSATA and then delete the Volume.

3) Re-install ExpressCache and reboot.

I recently installed a 32GB mSATA in my E420 and am very pleased with the results!

I did so 28 days ago and it has worked quite well.

I ordered a y580 with only the mechanical 750 GB drive.

Monthers later, I put in a 30 GB Intel mSATA* and installed a copy of Express Cache I had downloaded from Lenovo.

Works great. My boot times are cut somewhere between 25 and 50% depending on how I test.

GIMP loads in 10 seconds where it used to take 20.

 

* PN for the drive was SSDMCEAC030B301

Re: what is HDD express cache?

Hello, I have ExpressCache on my X240 and I am also seeing very high nonpaged pool memory consumption by the excsd.sys driver. Is this normal?
