First post, by simon_e_hall
been around the net looking for a definitive answer to this, but without joy.
I have a number of disk controllers with built in cache on them, but the documents with them are fairly poor. I am intrested in how they might work with smartdrv instaled:
Can you/ should you run these with smartdrv? If so what are the joys or nightmares regarding this.
My gut says no, as I was always taught not to run two disk caches at the sametime (but that was two software caches), but I am intrested to see other peoples take on this/ experience, or if there is some documentaiton out there on this.
It is really annoying as older versions of Windows always install smartdrv and I always remove it.
Now this may spark that old debate of which is the better method, at the end of the day on my older builds I love these old cache cards, just because I love them.
