Thinkpad edge E430 problems with expresscache

I've got an E430 with 16gb ssd drive,and tried to use expresscache to speed up my computer.I used "eccmd.exe -info" to check out how it works and here is the result.

Mounted : Yes
Partition Size : 14.91 GB
Reserved Size : 3.00 MB
Volume Size : 14.91 GB
Total Used Size : 3.74 GB
Total Free Space : 11.17 GB
Used Data Size : 3.67 GB
Used Data Size on Disk : 3.74 GB

As you can see,now the "total used size" is 3.74GB which indicates that the cache has benn stored on the sdd drive.

But every time I shut the computer down,and restart it, check the status, the "total used size"just return to about 300MB(maybe even lower), I wonder is this how it supposed to work like? Or this software  just doesn't function correctly on my computer,and if it does is malfunctioned, what I'm I supposed to do to fix it? Thank you...

Re: Thinkpad edge E430 problems with expresscache

Oh,and here is another thing that I noticed. A couple of days ago, I deleted the hibernation partition on my SSD drive because it takes up 8gb of storage,and seldom do I use hibernation. But I noticed that after I deleted the partition, my computer's boot up time seems to be slower than before, does that partition has some thing to do with boot up time?

Hi cozy2010,


Is this issue happening EVERY time you reboot - or just occasionally? If occasional, this is normal. If everytime you reboot, this may be a hardware issue in which case I would recommend contacting Lenovo support via one of the options listed on this page -
