I set this up on Windows 10 for a customer and something happened that caused their PC to crash then after that Windows 10 kept trying to repair but never could. A similar thing with a couple of Windows 7 64 installs. Blue screen then system insists on repairing.

This happened today when I tried an upgrade from 3.3 to 3.4. The program said I had to stop the cache then uninstall. It was when uninstalling that I got the blue screen. PC currently doing system restore.

MaxVeloSSD is incredibly fast but too unreliable to leave on a customer's PC. Unless anyone has some suggestions to make it more solid.

Windows 10 19H1 ( 10.0.18362.239 ) will reject older drivers. You will need to use versions:
MaxVeloSSD 3.4 ( current )
VeloSSD 3.1 ( current )
VeloRAM 3.1 ( will release 9th or 10th September 2019 )

Although the older versions are correctly signed they will be rejected by Windows 10 19H1 ( as far as our tests proved ) .

The quality of the software itself is not the point as far as we see it. It is the cryptographic signature that is put into it as a requirement
by Microsoft Windows 10 19H1. If this version in not supported by the signature then the OS will not load it.

It seems to be a bug in the OS because it accepts the installation of the drivers and then rejects to load them.

No the problem was that I stopped MaxVelo and it crashed. Any sort of unexpected shut down seems to cause file system corruption and a MaxVelo.sys blue screen. The computer is totally borked but that's not the point because I can clone it back off another hard drive (Macrium Reflect). The point is I don't want this happening to my customer. They will likely abuse the PC and expect it to recover. With MaxVelo it does not recover.

I need to try maybe write-through caching or something to make it more resilient.

This is the fastest caching I've seen but it's not safe enough for me at the moment. Let's improve it please.

I am still fighting this problem on aother computer. I can't uninstall MaxVeloSSD because it blue screens near the beginning of the uninstall. I can try from the Elitebytes menu in start or I can do it from control panel programs, both blue screen. Does the same in safe mode. I have deactivated the cache, I have tried with and without the SSD drive connected.
