SSD Advice W530: Do i have to DeInstall the LENOVO W530 ExpressCache?

I recently bought a Crucial MX500 2,5zoll 3D NAND SD 1 TB SATA_7mm _with 9,5 mm-Adapter_ThinkPad W530_Quad Core - Crucial DE; an exchanged it against The Lenovo buildt-in Drive0-HDD : TOSHIBA MQ01ABD100 (1TByte=size as the SSD!), which went then, into the former DVD-bay via a Amazon.com- Nimitz 2nd HDD SSD Hard Drive Caddy for Lenovo W510 W520 W530- Computers & Accessories as now :HDD1. I did the OS Win7 prof_de_x64 cloning with the "Crucial Storage Executive"-program. All works well and a immense increase of bootspeed was recognized. Same with app-speed increase! Their way of OS-transfer is well described in some videoclips and worked fine. Question : Before this i used the LENOVO W530 ExpressCache Programm on the former buildt in HDD0 which is now the SSD. Does this program interfere with the SSD's own cache programm , activated via "Crucial Storage Executive"-program? Do i have to DeInstall the LENOVO W530 ExpressCache Programm ? best regards

Hello,

 

You should uninstall the ExpressCache software, as it is no longer needed if you are booting directly from a SSD.
