Performance

I've been using this cache drive for a few days now and it's dramatically cut my boot and application load times. Boot up used to be 100 seconds, now it's under 20. On top of that this software just works! No problems like other cache software and it's extremely easy to use. I only wish they made a 64GB version and that their software could cache non-boot drives as well.

Installation is very simple, works just as documented on Win7. Maybe I missed something in the install, because ExpressCache requires me to OK the UAC dialog each time my computer boots up. Seems to cache a lot of data, and speeds up application startup and boot time, but not the 20s However, it also seems to use a lot of RAM by itself. My machine is limited by the chipset to 2GB, and usually runs at about 1.6G with a lot of Firefox windows open. Now it runs about 1.4G before starting Firefox. Can not find details of how it works, i.e. filter driver, etc. There are two processes running, ExpressCacheApp.exe and ExpressCache.exe. The latter is the sys-tray item, and quitting it reclaims about 35MB.
