I got ahci working (because I recently bought my ssd n that gave me the incentive to correct the connections, setting, see the diff between intel n asmedia)
yet i wonder what I didn't understand back in dec??

While Rapid mode or Intel Rapid Storage Tech write-back cache will extend the life of your SSD by coalescing writes and hence reducing write amplification, the lifetime of your SSD will be more than you will ever need without either of these.

thanks for the reply

I remember long ago (dos days) there use to be a Cache software that worked for all HDD
It was good to the point MSFT put them out of business.

I notice that Windows comes with their own cache for each HDD\SDD

Why isn't there a third party offering cache for all kinds of drives?
RAPID seems to be a waste if one has many SSD n HDD

or just by default Windows cache is good enough or not?

my bro n i been debating how long data is retained in solid state drives in archival basis.
We reason that HDD is still the best compared to Flash Drives, SSD, DVD, CD, Tapes
We ruled out this scsi optical cartridge disk for backup because we hate to come back to SCSI vs SATA

ie: In a flash drive if you didn't access it for two or more years then that day you did access nothing will be there
we seem to use that same reasoning for SSD

my other bro says the real solid state drives that do remember for long periods of times
just cost too much to make

so am I back to depending upon HDD for archival horror

Testing transfers involve two things.. The onboard cache.. Which most people think is the ssd speed, the best thing to do is get a HUGE file, maybe 100gb, open task man and check that free is around 0, and that's your speed.. Otherwise your just testing ram/cache and drive.. Please correct me if I'm wrong smile.gif

Old dos systems I think reserved memory for the file allocation table to sit so, when listing files, creating table entrys got faster, but when it came to data there wasn't any sort of caching. I remember trying to install windows 95 with it turned off.. Took so long.

My samsung ssd just got firmware bricked, any way to get the firmware back on it? Can't get it to work connected to any Sata ports direct to the motherboard but a USB controller gets me inside it. Idk how to go from there besides RMA and hoping that it takes more than 30 days so I get my money back and upgrade to a 500GB one.

so you can't add the firmware thru usb?
then it just pays to RMA and upgrade, lol I'd wish I was that lucky I got a 256gb but it was on-sale

I believe I'd have to do it through DOS but honestly I think I'll have it RMA'ed and wait. I sure as hell won't be getting the same so according to EU laws if I get a new one, the warranty starts from there if I get the money I purchase a better one. Win-win for me in all accounts.

If there was some level of certainty DOS would work, I would do it but I rather not mess with it not knowing how it will end up after DOS.

It could be the ability to disable CPU cache in BIOS to support some old DOS programs that not work on PC with level 1 cache. This option only available on first generation ATX computers to be compatible with old progs.

If anyone needs it, I wrote a program to encode/decode ".enc" files.
You can find it here:
