Momentum Cache Inactive!

[ Edited ]

I just installed the new ES Client v3.46 and I have no ability to set the Momentum Cache to ACTIVE - there is only a DISABLE button.  MC is v1.7.3.0.  SSDs are CT500BX100SSD1 & CT525MX300SSD1.

 

Any advice on being able to properly enable this would be appreciated.

 

Also, I noticed that the new version (at least under Win10x) does not ad a selection to the Start Menu - I have to go into the folder and manually launch the exe.

 

Thanks.

 

BTW, here isthe benchmark of the main drive (as I have the other set as the A: drive, the benchmark program does not see it) -

Update - selecting DISABLE and rebooting disabled it on BOTH drives and gave me the option to enable it.  HOWEVER, when I selected one drive (the boot drive) it *required* it to reboot, and while it is enabled now on the boot drive, I am AGAIN unable to enable it on the second -

I simply cannot understand HOW Crucial can make something SO simple, so utterly complicated and non-functioning.  I sincerly hope there is an EASY fix to this.  Re-running the benchmarks show a SIGNIFICANT increase in everything but the Sequential.  So it was clearly disabled from the begining.

As far as I can remember the Momentum Cache can be enabled on one drive only and it is recommended that you enable it on your boot drive.

Re: Momentum Cache Inactive!

With all due respect, that would seem UTTERLY illogical.  Why have it enabled on only 1 drive?  Do you enable Windows cache on only one standard HDD?  Of course not.

 

This, impo, is a failure from Crucual, simple as that.  If I can't get an official Crucial rsponse here, I'll escalate it to their tech center.

Probably because it munches a lot of RAM.  I'd guess most people don't have sufficient RAM to have a RAM cache on multiple drives?
