September 15 2015
Changes in Version 126.96.36.199
This version is a big jump ahead since it adds many features from the MaxVeloSSD CodeBase.
S.M.A.R.T and Performance monitoring,
WriteThrough, Scan Resistant
Maximum Host Capacity Limits ( now 2 PetaByte ).
Thoroughly tested under Windows 10.
Bugs with multiple cache Data Volumes removed.
Bugs in the Cache engine were removed.
Bugs with recovery after power loss were removed.
Recovery is now quicker, especially when the write cache is filled up.
Earlier versions needed to write the Write Cache back completely before boot.
That could result in frustrating long boot times.
Internal corruption due Power loss / reset occurred every once and a while. This is fixed.
If an internal on disk structure is corrupted ( possible write error while loosing power ) fallback failover recognizes and replaces it.
Changes in Version 188.8.131.52
This version adds a chart control to the application.
It allows precise visualization of IOPS/MBPS. Cache Hit/Miss and Data export in XML.
Support for Cache on Software RAID SSD Volumes was overworked.
Windows 10 Preview compatibility was added.
On big fragmented Cache a CPU Hog/Honk was removed ( Rare Condition).
Numerous Detail changes, please see the Change log for full reference.
Changes in Version 184.108.40.206
This version supports caching of Storage Volumes on USB3 and SDxC Cards.
This is very useful for Computers with no more free SATA ports.
You can connect the SSD Device over USB3, a SSD connected this way will have almost the same speed as over SATA.
Sticks also work good and accelerate HDD driven Laptops and Desktops.
Hard Disks mounted in Folders can be cached too with this version.
Building up on the reliable VeloSSD Software, this Version adds multilingual Help System and User manual.
Changes in Version 220.127.116.11
Fixed the yellow Device Manager Entry in Windows 8.0 and later ( in the System Devices branch ).
Fixed a serious bug with SSD Sector sizes > 512 bytes. ( SSD with big Sectors ?
-put multiple SSD´s in a Storage Space and you get a 4k Sector size.
Please try this only with Version 18.104.22.168 ! Actually you don´t need to try because the SW will deny big cache Sectors.
Would that be cool ? - SSD cache in a Storage Space ? -Write us your opinions, and we will see.)
Trial activation was worked on.
An application crash after activation was identified and removed.
-The Storage Device Manufacturer name was missing in the volume info.
ReFS recognition and compatibility.
NTFS & ReFS Checkpoint syncronisation. ( Checkpoints ( not Snapshots ) are written quite often by these 2 file systems and represent transactional consistant states. )
Better deinstall, removes also cache from volumes that are not longer online. *MaxVeloSSD will be rereleased next. There will be an upgrade path for VeloSSD customers.
