Preferred Solution: what caching software does seagate use

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: what caching software does seagate use

It may not have come with any such software, I've never had to install any when going to a new drive. Have you checked with Seagate or the maker/vendor of the Notebook/Laptop? Basically put, cache is a memory module on the interface board on the drive, holds data temporarily while writing to the disk/s.

I already tried (4 times) cloning my HDD with the Maxtor software but that didn't work. I used the Seagate software on a Seagate HDD(120GB) and it worked perfectly. I now want to use it on my Maxtor 200GB HDD but I get a warning that the Seagate software is for Seagate HDDs. I want to clone it to use it in the same computer - Dell 2350 Dimension, 768MB of memory, P4, 2.1Ghz. Should I follow the warning? Does it matter?
 

A:Should Seagate software be used w/ a Maxtor HDD????

If it were mine I'd try it anyway, it just might work! Bill Gates put phony software warnings in Win95 that would popup when you tried installing certain (non-microsoft) products - so you would buy from him. But it was just a fake warning that the aftermarket software wouldn't work, because they did.
That could be the case here - but then again it might not really work - so be careful...

Hello,

I have 2 Seagate Free Agent external hard drives that I use for backup.
One is that older brown case type, that stands vertically.
The other is a newer style; silver case, lighted logo, and lays flat.

I am running Windows 7, the 64 bit version.

I now have these hard drives plugged in continuously as it is a pain to plug them in and out. They are used for backing up and storage very infrequently, so they just grind away all the time for really no good reason.

No sleep or hibernate software came with the units, but I did see the following on the Seagate site:

FreeAgent Classic Desktop Software
File Version: FreeAgent-DT-WW.zip

Apparently this download provides the sleep function that I would like.

Question: it says for 32 bit systems ONLY.

But, I am running a 64 bit OS, although I imagine nearly all my applications
are 32 bit. How does this work; is the OS smart enough to know that the Seagate application is 32 bit only, or does Seagate truly mean that you have to have an (only) 32 bit OS ? Think it'll work ?

Anyone happen to know of any other software available to provide a sleep or hibernate type function for external HD's ?

Thanks,
Bob

I still have one Windows95 PC in addition to others. My issue is with the Windows95 machine. I cannot access my backup hardware.

Before I go on, let me say, bottom line, that I desire to be legal in all my dealings.

Sometime toward the end of 1999, I purchased a SONY SuperStation tape cartridge backup device and a copy of "Backup Exec" software for desktop created by Seagate. Now the Veritas company owns that software, but now uses that software name for an up-to-date (and more expensive) network backup system. And beyond posting some patch and upgrade downloads, Veritas doesn't support my old software.

At some point in 2000 or 2001, I had gotten dazzled with an ad for "Backup MyPC" software by a company called "Stomp" and downloaded a trial version. I liked it.

What apparently happened is that this trial software somehow must have either commandeered the ".exe" for "Backup Exec" and I didn't realize it at the time, or I did something else in error. Eventually, the software trial period for the Stomp "Backup MyPC" software expired. Although I thought I had purchased it, apparently I hadn't. And because I had moved on to newer systems, I hadn't done any backups on the Win95 for a couple of years or more either, so I was totally unaware that I had a problem until now.

Now I wish to use my old Win95 machine for some programming classes. I want to see what I had backed up before, back things up... Read more

TSG may feel free to remove this string at their leisure because...

I have found someone from whom I might purchase a copy of the software I was seeking. "FREE" would have seemed better, but in researching the situation, I found that I THOUGHT I had purchased it when in fact I had a timed trial version that I had let lapse. My memory of that particular detail lapsed as well apparently. So in reality, buying the software is what's really better.

Hi all,

When you load a webpage, the files (images, ...) that the webpage contains will be downloaded. If the server hosting the webpage goes down while the files are being downloaded, then IE's Temporary Internet Files will contain partially downloaded files. When the server is back up and running, and you refresh the page, the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading, and will never be downloaded again. The webpage will never display the files that were partially downloaded, and the only way to fix this is to delete the Temporary Internet Files.

Other browsers do not have this problem. It looks like IE does not compare the file size in the Cache, to the file size on the server, but only compares the date, which is the same.

How to reproduce the problem (for developers):
-create a webpage that contains a big file (jpg, swf, or any file).
-on a client computer, clear the Temporary Internet Files, then start loading the page.
-before the file has time to finish downloading, stop and start the web server.
-look inside the Temporary Internet Files, and you will see a partially downloaded file.
-refresh the page, and the partially downloaded files will not finish downloading.

Note: I tried many different file headers, but it looks like whatever header you set for the file, even "no caching ..." headers, the problem always happens.

I just have a question about this. I got a vista home premium 32-bit gateway laptop. And I see the option to delete DNS Cache in CCleaner. All I'm curious about is, what is that really going to do? Anything major besides make my pages load .2 seconds slower?

A:DNS Caching

In general, it's not going to do anything other than force the system to go out and repopulate the cache as you surf the web.

Also, if the DNS Cache is "poisoned" it can prevent you from reaching a website that you want to go to.

Hello!

I am about to buy my SSD, but I don't know whether I can use the Crucial M4 64GB for caching, next to using it for my complete OS and a game (maybe two, 7 GB average). Because what I would like to do, is put my OS on it (Win7 64-bit) and the game. And then use (a part of) the space left (around 30GB, reserving 27GB for the OS and 3~4GB for the game) for Caching.

Will this work? Or can I only use the Intel SSD Caching on a empty SSD?

P.S. Someone told me I could only use ~20GB or 60GB for SRT Caching, I find this hard to believe, is it true?
P.P.S. Is it true I ought to put the SRT Caching to 64GB? Or would there actually be a difference if I would put my OS and Call of Duty 4 directly on my SSD?


Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hi

I have a company network with 2 internal dns servers on 192.168.0.7 and 192.168.0.9.
Using DHCP.

2 problem Win7 clients.

When I run ipconfig /all on both it shows both DNS servers as expected 

We have a corporate server on AWS and it's IP address changed on Monday during a restart.
Shouldn't have but it did, so we are stuck with a new public facing DNS name for that server, so we updated the friendly CNAME record to point to the new address.

18 of our 20 internal clients, including Win7, 8 and 10 clients and Mac and Linux clients are all finding the corporate server now using the original friendly name.

But 2 Win7 clients are still not getting there.

On both, if we run
nslookup <friendly.domname.com>

It returns the name of of our primary internal DNS server (as nameserver) and the NEW IP address of the host address

So it seems that the client's base OS DNS lookup returns the correct IP.

If I paste that IP into either chrome or Internet Explorer, I get the correct website.

However, if I enter <friendly.domname.com> into either browser (and Firefox) a different website appears.

I can in Chrome test the dns resolver using chrome://net-internals/#dns which returns a list of addresses in chromes internal cache.
And I can flush that browser dns cache by clicking the "clear host cache" button

If I then try the same <friendly.domname.com> again, the cache list is re-populated with a bunch of urls acce... Read more

Hey,
I have been looking around for information about using a onboard msata ssd as a boot drive for fast start up etc.
I have found information about loading windows directly to this drive (setting this drive as c and lists of ways to move the my music files etc to another partition so that when windows starts it only reads program information. However it sounds as if all or most programs would be saved to the drive not windows only.
Other information has described setting this up as a cache via srt with the cache automatically recognizing whats used most often and storing it there saving the issue of less frequently programs slowing it down.

Does anyone use this system? Do you know of a good msata ssd?
Is it possible to set up a drive as a boot drive and only store windows there?
Can you use onboard msata as a boot drive for windows and another small ssd for srt caching?

Sorry about all the questions a total noob to msata and ssd caching. My mobo will have srt / onboard msata capability and Id like to use it.

Ok, so my hard drive in ACHI mode does not allow me to enable write caching but in compatibility mode it does.

Should I enable write caching?

Also this whole thing about memory loss is bugging me on what they are talking about. I have a laptop with a battery and mostly has power. But what if power were to cut off or it gets somehow unpluged, will my HD be corrupt? or would that "Word" document I was working on that was not saved be gone, everything else will be fine?

A:Write caching

You can read this tutorial from Vistax64 on it. Basically, it's not recommended for laptops without a UPS. I believe if the power were to go out, only the temp. cache would be lost, so like your word document you were working on might be lost if it were to go out.

Also a tut on how to enable it with AHCI on, but I don't think it was relevant if you read all the comments in the tutorial.

On another thread I had stated that there will be a performance hit if you turn off write caching for a SSD. But on second thought, I am not so sure any more.

What write caching allows (in my understanding) is to accumulate records in a buffer so that so that they can be written to the disk in one big swoop. That is an advantage on a spinning disk because all those records are written during the same rotation - and there is also only one seek for the arm.

I wonder though whether that brings the same advantage to the SSD where access time to any place is the same - and it is usually only 0.1ms. There would be an advantage if the records were written in larger blocks from the buffer because the SSD's write performance grows as the block size grows. But if records are still being written e.g. 4K at a time, there may not be an advantage.

Does anybody know whether the blocksize for the write operations increases with caching?

A:For the write caching experts

Hi whs - I see your point about the "write caching" and the SSD. Actually I think SSD's do write smaller blocks of data even faster than large sequential blocks so you could very well be right.

It would be interesting to run a series of tests with the "write caching" turned both on and off- Checking the Windows Disk WEI and checking the results of some of the disk benchmarking utilities (like HD Tune and ATTO).

At the moment I have my "write caching" turned on.

I have a problem.
Isn't available policy of Performance Disk, and... write caching not working.
And I can not find its way to activate it from other side.
In the device manager, into the options of the disk, Performance Policy not appears. Before it was available in previous betas, but in this case it is impossible for me to activate the option.
Some form of activity? Thank you.

Hi there everyone -

My situation's this: got a computer loading roaming profile, server is running Win2K.

As I log off on the computer, this is the error message:

EVENT TYPE: Warning
EVENT SOURCE: Userenv
EVENT CATEGORY: None
EVENT ID: 1525
DATE: 7/6/2005
TIME: 10:43:40AM
USER: CHDICKERSIN\aashraf
COMPUTER: JHUDCGFRK71
DESCRIPTION:
Windows has detected that offline caching is enabled on the Roaming Profile share - to avoid potential profile corruption, Offline Caching must be disabled on shares where roaming user profiles are stored.

For more information, see Hlep and Support Center at
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

So I went to the MS Support site and found this link:
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;287566

BUT it doesn't solve my problem, because I don't have a share on a separate server, as the solution instructed.

Where is your roaming profile coming from if not the server?

If your saying its on the server but is not shared then I would suggest to make it shared as it should be (not sure how its working if its not) and then go in to the caching and disable it.

I installed Ubuntu 14.04 alongside Windows 8.1 so I could dual boot them and I think I accidentally disabled SSD caching since my computer is starting Windows 8.1 a lot slower than it did before I installed Ubuntu.

I think it has something to do with Intel Rapid Storage, but I don't know, that's just a guess.

I have an inspiron 14 7000 series and I know it has a SSD along side the HDD that is used for caching

hi,

i'm a newbie web designer, and i've got what seems to be a pb w/caching. the pb only occurs in IE -- not mozilla or netscape.

what happens is, the page loads and i go to mouse over an image where i've got image swapping set up for a mouseover. instead of just swapping the image, IE does another GET. once the mouse leaves the image, IE does yet another GET to redisplay the image it already had. i can keep doing this ad infinitum, it does a GET for every single image swap, even once it's gotten the image already.

here's weird thing #1: i'm preloading the images. looking at the web server trace file, IE definitely does preload the images, so it shouldn't need to keep GETting them.

weird thing #2: going to another page by clicking a link, then using "back" to get back to the bad page alleviates the pb; the bad page displays perfectly.

now here's weird thing #3: the pb goes away when i completely clear out the cache! if i manually delete all the files in Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5 and then go into internet options and do it again so that IE knows everything's gone, then reload the page -- everything works fine, just like it does w/mozilla! no delays on image swapping! IE preloads the images and swaps them w/o doing any more GETs. i was thinking that if it were a pb w/the image not being cached, a sure way to reproduce the pb would be to clear out the cache. in fact, that solves the pb.

the superfetch feature has seemed to stop caching as much...

ive had fresh install of vista ultimate for 2-3 weeks now and Superfetch was filling the 1.5Gb spare RAM with cache data (as it does) , now its seemed to have stopped even though the service is still running...

right now its saying 450Mb cached and 900Mb free ???

Now i was testing it on and off when i first installed Vista to see what the fuss was about and most of the time when it was OFF it would still cache to about the same figures as above but most of the time it would end up filling all 1.5Gb cache (yes even when off)... NOW its been on 2 weeks running and filling up the cache quicker than normal (as its learning) but then from yesterday its stopped filling it right up??? why is this???

I did install Firefox Pre-Loader and have uninstalled it due to problems with firefox actually NOT opening - I doubt that would have affected it

THANKS

Hi all,

Quick question. I have a spare Agility 2 64GB SSD doing nothing so I'm wondering if I can use it as a pagefile drive for my OS drive which is also an SSD drive.

*NOTE*

All the threads I've read about this have all been about using the OS drive whether it be an SSD drive or HD for pagefiling. I want to use a SPARE SSD drive to pagefile FOR my OS drive.

Is this even possible and if so, how do I do it?

A:Using a spare SSD for Pagefile and caching

Yes, it is possible.

The general advice is not to do it, since it can shorten the life of the SSD because the pagefile is written to often and SSDs have their limitations in regards to that.

But things have gotten better: Taking a Hard Look At SSD Write Endurance - Slashdot

It's for you to decide. I say better to make sure you have enough system RAM (8 GB is starting to get into the "a lot" zone for 64 bit OS - on a 32 bit OS, 4 is "a lot".)

I see you have 24 GB of RAM installed. The pagefile still does certain things, but will be used much less than a system with say 4 GB RAM.

If you do it, make sure TRIM command is active in Windows.

All you would need to do is tell Windows to set the page file to the drive, while deleting the current page file. Nothing difficult.

This is about the worst case I've ever seen of a crippled pc. When I first looked at this pc, there was only 177MB of free disk space out of 110GB. I installed the drive onto another pc so I could run a virus scan and I also ran malwarebytes. There were thousands of temporary files that I deleted and the trojan vundo virus was found and supposedly removed. There is now about 70GB of free space. I reinstalled the drive back into the original pc and it woks ok in safe mode. In normal mode, the disk still constantly caches. The wallpaper appears but the desktop icons do not appear. Below is the HJT log. Thanks for your help.

Scenario: I am trying to hook my laptop up through a VPN so that I can work from out of my office. I start my computer and the login screen pops up. In the past, i was able to just use my domain password to get into windows, then connect via VPN so i could get my outlook email and browse my company's network. Now, just today, when i start my computer and try to log into windows, it says my password is invalid and i should contact my system admin. Is this a problem with the way win xp caches the profile? Maybe there is a time limit that xp will keep a profile cached?
I have to dial-up using the VPN, so, the password isnt looking at the domain because my laptop isn't connected to anything until i pull up the vpn.

Please help.

PS= I am the network admin!!!!!!!
 

A:VPN connection/caching profile??

Usually I only see this on newly built PC's or PC's that you have not logged onto for the first time.

From time to time I have seen this occur even on windows NT machines but have never seen "why".

Do you run your VPN as a service? If so have you thoughts about trying to log onto your PC as Adnmin to the PC VPNing in and then logging on as your Domain user ID and password.

This is the problem I have:

On Windows Vista Business machine.
I have created 4 identical CDs. They all have the same volume label.
I'm not sure about any possible serial number that I have heard people talk about.

I became uncertain about whether they had all been created properly and decided to check them one at a time in the same drive.
After doing a file comparison of the 1st CD against the same set of files on the hard drive, I put the 2nd CD in the drive and did the same file comparison.
Instead of it taking a couple of minutes, it took about 10 seconds, which makes me think that Vista is caching the CD contents somewhere,
and when a CD with the same volume label is inserted it assumes it is the same CD and just uses the cached contents.
If I reboot the machine and try the 2nd CD again, the file comparison takes about 2 minutes again, which you would expect, since rebooting is going to clear the cache.

Although Googling this gave me a couple of people with the same problem I can't find any info on the caching, and in particular, on how to turn it off.
I don't think this has anything to do with the "Write Caching" which I did find in the DVD drive properties.
Does anyone know how to turn this caching off?

Many thanks in advance....

I have a dell laptop that will not clear the cache for browsing websites. The problem is that when I look at one of my own websites online, update the html page and then uploaded, refresh the page in internet explorer, the page doesn't refresh. No matter what! Clearing internet files, history and cookies. Rebooting... nothing works. (using xp and ie 6.0)

Any ideas of what to start looking for?

Thanks!
