  1. Primocache worked for me, I will see how good the performance boosts will be and I will decide if I want to pay for the program, right now I have the free trial. Thanks to als of you for helping me!!
  2. Ummm, When I try to type $SSD, $HDD or Get-StorageTier -FriendlyName *SSD* I get nothing in return, I think I should get at least something, right?
  3. I actually don't remember exactly, cause I was searching online and was trying everything I found , fortunately I backed up my files , brief overview: I created a pool in Storage Spaces through control panel, which included simple resiliency and I included the RAID 1 4TB array and the SSD, I actually don't know if I setup a Virtual Disk afterwards in powershell, that would probably be the problem right? EDIT: I tried to delete the old pool and created a new one, and tried the command you posted, Get-StoragePool "4TB" | New-VirtualDisk -FriendlyName "4TB Cached Storage" -ResiliencySettingName "Simple" –StorageTiers $SSD, $HDD -StorageTierSizes 110GB, 3.63TB, and yes, I have the pool named 4TB, so that should be fine and it says: New-VirtualDisk : Failed to run CIM method CreateVirtualDisk on the MSFT_StoragePool (ObjectId = "{1}\\DESKTOP-U6R94VR\ root/Microsoft/Win...) CIM object. Pole CIM nesmí obsahovat elementy, které jsou null. Název parametru: value At line:1 char:25 + ... ool "4TB" | New-VirtualDisk -FriendlyName "4TB Cached Storage" -Resil ... + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ + CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (MSFT_StoragePoo...crosoft/Win...):CimInstance) [New-VirtualDisk], CimJobE xception + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CimJob_ArgumentException,New-VirtualDisk Any ideas?
  4. I pretty much got it to work, the only thing I can't do, is increase the cache size I only have the the 1GB cache that was set when I created the pool, the storagepoolfriendlyname slot is empty when I try to list it in powershell, I do not know how to set it and I need it to increas or modify the cache. Do you know how to set storagepoolfriendlyname or how to increase cache without it?
  5. You can go full balls to the walls and go RAID 0 on everything if you only want speed, but then of course, 1 drive fails, you loose all the data in the array, maybe you could use some HDDs in raid 1 or 5 or 6 or 10 for all of your data(not doing separate arrays for apps, games, data, etc.) and use like a 250, 500 GB or 1 TB SDD to cache it with some kind of software. I would still install the OS on the PCIE SSD anyways
  6. hmmm... that is a pretty intiresting setup, as you asked, games only load better on SSDs(in RAID 0 or not), I would put the OS on the PCIE SSD, cause if you put it on the 4 SSDs in RAID 0, you would have much greater chance of one of them failing and loosing your OS, maybe if you wouldn't put ANYTHING on there, no apps, nothing, maybe you wouldn't mind if you lost the OS, you could just install another copy of Windows EDIT: I would put your most used data on the SSDs and OS on the PCIE SSD
  7. yes, if it has SATA connectors, you can
  8. You most likely CAN buy replacements boards, they should be easy to find on sites like Aliexpress, when you search for the drives name(example: STBD6000100) and you should find replacement boards.
  9. Yes, I tried both and from the experience I have the WD Blue is faster and actually quite a lot considering they are nearly the same HDD..., I think the Blue also has more cache, but I am not sure about that
  10. I don't know how much space you have between the hard drive and the side panel, but you can try to grab a 90 degree angle SATA cable and turn the HDD around, so the ports are at the front and try to fit the right angle cable between the side panel, if that fits, the power cable shouldn't be a problem. As far as the HDD as you have it goes, the cables shouldn't be a problem functionaly, maybe just aestheticly
  11. I've heard about using RAMdisk or a similar program to cache some files with your RAM, so it would probably be possible to somehow load the windows files onto your ram from another harddrive when you switch on the PC and then save the files to the drive again, but considering you would probably be doing that to speed up the boot times and the boot times would be as fast as your read speed is on the harddrive SSD that you are loading from, as someone already said, it would maybe be faster using a NVME SSD or SSD RAID 0 array, not because NVME SSDs are faster, because they are not, but because it would be a giant hassle to set it up and your boot times wouldn't be much faster.
  12. as Vitalius said, there is the same data on both drives, just unRAID them and you are done , besides reformating the second drive of course
