    A very interesting topic. MuadDib, thank you very much for sharing this valuable information with us!

     

    The original post of MuadDib is now almost a year old. When searching for ExpressCache I found multiple newer versions. The newest I found is 1.3.1. Available through the forums of SanDisk. Does anyone here have experience with ExpressCache versions above the one that MuadDib is using? (1.0.94)

    Very interesting what you did. But what is wrong with ExpressCache?  A speed comparison with both Intel Smart Response Technology and ExpressCache would be really nice, but a lot of work. But there must be a reason why Acer payed for ExpressCache instead of using the free Intel software. And other manufacters are also using ExpressCache. And the other thing is that if you have windows installed with AHCI, you have to re-install it with bios on raid for your method to work. But I would love to see more results of your method. I appreciate the good work!

    Can you share a screenshot of Disk Management to see the size of the original partitions?

     

    Thanks

    Good morning!
    I formatted my Acer M5 and installed windows 7.
    I managed to set my SSD as a cache but I can not use Intel Smart.
    When I type in cmd "ECCmd -info" says the cache is working.
    But the BIOS does not have RAID and also the Accelerate button does not appear in the intel software.

     

    What can I do?
    I have to create a partition for Intel Smart?

    I got the same here. I can't change the sata to RAID. Only ACHI or IDE were available.

     

    Another issue is taht I can't start the boot from dvd drive. Even if I choose this on bios. I've already enabled the option to choose the boot, but again, only shows the windows boot partition. How can I change this?

     

    Sorry for my poor English.
