Does SRT SSD caching affect all drives or just the C: drive?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I just upgraded my system to run my OS on a 250GB Samsung 840 SSD but am now left with an extra 80GB SSD that I used to use for my system drive.. I wanted to use the 80GB for Intel's SRT SSD caching because I use a lot of work files from old 2TB HDDs every day. However, I don't know if the SRT technology speeds up just files from the C: drive or any files that the system accesses, even if on the G drive or the K drive, etc.

Well it's not a simple answer but:

SRT can only cache 1 volume, and generally you would want that to be C:
SRT can be configured to cache the non-OS drive. My SSD is split between OS and SRT cache partitions- so my OS runs directly off the SSD and I'm using SRT to cache my ( D: ) 2tb storage drive.
SRT can cache multiple drives, IF those drives were configured as a single RAID volume.

But in the way you are describing it, NO. SRT will not cache C: AND G:/K:/ect.
