Topic: VeloSSD GUI won't show
Hello, thanks for participating in our forum.
Instead of emailing the support everybody can make their questions public if they like.

To the topic:
The App lives usually in the Windows tray right lower corner.
Maybe you checked that already and by right clicking it will show a menu to
show the app in full size.
Did that help ?

Hello,
After installing VeloSSD Trial(latest version) I configured my cache task and restarted the OS(Win 10 Pro, latest version). After the restart the Velo GUI won't open. I see the process is working with constant 17-18% CPU load, but nothing happens. On the other hand cashing is working with no problem.

Auto shutdown after attempt to add VeloSSD

So here is what happens.

I click add VeloSSD and it opens the wizard. click next. Select C: to accelerate and click next. Get warning and acknowledge it about SMART warnings. Select SSD (Esmile and use slider to max it out. Click OK and review the info... all seems good. Click next and the entire program closes.

Upon re-opening the program... no new Velo SSD. Some help here would be great.

I'll also note that I tried to use the free trial and it would not allow me to even proceed into the program without a product key... odd. I purchased a key because it was very little $. I was all excited and yeah... having this issue.

Topic: Enlarge SSD Cache
Ok, here is what I did :
After a restart the file was deleted. I recreated cache with the desired size.
But I don't want to try if enlarging works now. I hate restarts, not to mention they take long, don't ask me why .. my ssd is the boot drive.
Any chance this option will be changed to "resize cache" in future versions .. as in shrink/enlarge, even if shrinking is with wiping the contents ?

Cybertod, the app will not respond in Trial mode, it should display a little message saying this.
This is fixed now and will be part of the next update.

Activated it will display the "enlarge SSD cache" Dialog Windows
with a big pie chart. So I guess you are running still in Trial mode.

Don´t go and delete by hand / force.
The app will do this correct and safe.
If you already deleted the cache file make
sure the cache is deleted in the app too.

The cache file is just a hidden file
and gets visible if you turn that on in the explorer.

It is a normal file and deletable,
although it is protected against deletion
as long as the cache itself lives in the app.

Long talk short sense:

enlarge ssd feature is available in the activated app.

Please do, because I don't know what to do now.
I am trying to remove the cache now and make bigger now from scratch.
But the issue is that I removed the cachea and still the free space is not restored. The file is still there even though it is not used by the app.

I can just go and delete the file .. but is this the right way to do it ?
And if you need me to send something to help figuring out where the problem is I will.

Cybertod, I will come back to you here and clear this issue up in a short while. Cache size changing has not been touched for a while but is known to work. However I´ll be back soon.

Ok, now I am not happy.
I bought the personal edition. I activated it. I even got a message saying that I can add more cache now. When I replied Yes then the box for adjusting cache size popped up. I changed the cache size and the app is not responding.

Good to know, but why does it go not responding and not just popup a message that this is not available in trial.
I just wanted to make sure it works correctly before buying.
And if the app goes unresponsive like this and there is no way of killing it, unable to do so from task manager .. does the service still works, does the caching still happens ?

Immediate size up/down is not available in Trial.
But you can remove cache, reboot and then create
a new one with the wanted size.

Topic: Enlarge SSD Cache
I just installed MaxVeloSSD and chose some size for the cache.
It required restart and I did that.
Now I want to increase the size of the cache but when I do it goes not responding.
I tried restarting, selected the same operation and again .. not responding

Topic: New activation system 11 / 2018
This applies to customers that bought keys earlier. Back then there was no way to deactivate the key for a computer and assign it to another.
Since this is possible with the new system, also the older customers should be enabled to take their profit from it.
Therefore EliteBytes will add activations to all customer accounts one time for free. This will happen in November 2018.

I just reïnstalled my computer with fresh Windows OS.

Try to install MaxVeloSSD, but cannot activate because I have to reset activation.


Error Exc0001:No activation available anymore. Log into your access on www.elitebytes.com and deactivate a device there to be able to carry out the activation here.


How to do that, cannot find any button to reset/release activation with the key I use.

Regards,
Jacob Havinga

Topic: old Trial vs. New
Included in the 2018 autumn update showdown is are new Trial versions for each of our products.
VeloRAM, VeloSSD and MaxVeloSSD.

The old versions are strongly restricted and do not allow to test power of higher editions like Data Center.

This was changed, all new product Trials are completely unrestricted in the amount of RAM and SSD to use.

The only restrictions remaining is the number of cache Volumes and the 30 day time limit.

Topic: EliteBytes VeloRAM accelerates Web DB
Our Website Database Volume uses VeloRAM as accelerator.
The Database runs completely from RAM.

This is a consequent step forward after this article earlier 2018:


we proved that it really makes it much faster.

Technical details and instructions are available on that page.

It works on any database product, neither old or new.

Topic: Old activation vs. New
With each purchase of one product the old system allowed 6 activations.
Deactivation and assignment to other devices was not possible.
Usually resetting the activation had to be done manually by support.

We found that all unsatisfying for the end user and really old fashioned.
A partially redesign was implemented:


New system will allow deactivation and assignment to other devices
in a transparent way and with no restrictions besides the total number of devices
that can be used simultaneously by one purchased license.

A typical setting for this in the software industry is to allow 2 devices and 1 deactivation ( change ) per month.

The last word on this has not been said, but rumours believe it will be around 4.

Topic: Direct Access Storage (DAX) Volume Support
Update 11 / 2018 support these new kind of volumes.
The main difference is that it accesses that like RAM.

As some may know MaxVeloSSD uses RAM as a first level cache.
This makes it so fast.
Because it just needs a memory copy operation to perform I/O.
SSD works as a second level cache.

Now with DAX Volume this can be selected as the 2nd level cache instead of SSD.
Properly configured it will be detected and used like RAM.
