What is Caching?

Caching is ideal for users who are looking for a simple way to get SSD speed without changing their current setup or sacrificing storage space. Working in tandem with a spinning hard drive (HDD), utilizing a solid state drive (SSD) as a cache drive will boost overall performance and increase life span of any notebook or desktop PC.

The Way SSD Caching Works

SSD caching fills a partition on a solid state drive (SSD) with the most frequently queued data from commonly used applications rather than storing it on the hard drive it's working with.

For example, a 128GB cache drive will enable users to cache the majority of data from commonly used applications that will, in turn, reduce the wear on the spinning hard drive by calling from the cached information directly from the SSD. A 32GB cache drive will be more discerning about the information cached based on the drive's storage capacity but it will still collect plenty of data to make using programs like Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, or Steam run smoother than previously before.

When new programs, applications, or games are installed, their frequent use information will be automatically be cached to the SSD as well, keeping optimal performance.

Ric,

HybriDisk only caches the system drive. You can not cache a storage disk with this program. A number of customers have asked for this though and we are diligently looking for a way to make it happen. As soon as we find anything, we'll be sure to post it here on our blog. Sorry we can't be more help at this time.

I had my OS boot in a ADATA SSD.
I have a Hard Disk for storage.
I have installed MyDigitalSSD Super Cache 2 and install Fnet HybriDisk.
When I run the software Fnet it can only detect my ADATA SSD as Master and when I click the+ under cache nothing is in the list.
I can read my SC2 under windows explorer.

What seems to be the problem?

Fola,

Not with this software. FNet HybriDisk is written specifically to use the Super Cache 2 as the cache disk.

I'd like to combine this with a nonprimary hard drive. I already have OS boot on an ssd. Is this doable?

Paul,

Please email the details of what you did leading up to the error to info@mydigitaldiscount.com and our Tech Support team will be happy to help troubleshoot the issue. It could just be a simple fix of using a new activation code or it may need an RMA.

What do we do if the software says "Activation failed".
