VeloSSD Update Release Version 2.0.0.6
Hello,
Please Install this update, it fixes stability and performance issues.
To go to the update page click Settings->update.
Or download it from www.elitebytes.com
Changes:
-Write stress hardened. Crystal Diskbench was executed 45 times in a row.
There was nothing unusual to expect or detect.
-issues preventing a machine to start were researched and fixed.
-One very big issue was that of a user reporting boot hang after installation.
The software was changed to detect and neutralize this missbehaviour.
See below for more details on this.
-Removable Storage is not longer allowed as cache for Boot Volumes
-A warning was added before a boot volume cache is created.
-The minimal cache size is now 8GB.

Details on boot hang neutralisation
Such a thing has happened very rarely. Unfortunately there was a complaint.
When the System hangs on the first reboot after installation.
Just press reset, the computer will start then with the cache neutralized.
A Message Box whill show up later on the desktop
and explain the user what has happened.

VeloSSD2012 Update Version 2.1.0.0
Release Date: 20. March 2013

Excerpt from Relase Notes:

  1. added EFI / UEFI native Boot / Windows 8 Secure boot compatibility.
  2. Host volume size is not longer limited to 2 Terabyte, the maximum size now is 128 Terabyte.
  3. added support to use cache on software raid.
    ( Useful to bundle SSD´s for capacity and speed. See the chapter about bundling SSD´s at the end of the user manual.)
  4. When you remove your SSD while cache is installed, you can start and use your computer as normally.
    ( all earlier versions required the SSD to be in place to boot the cached operating system. )
  5. The Cache Algorithm is now “scan resistant”.
    (Scan resistance will prevent the cache from being polluted by big copy operations.)
  6. A user manual and help system for VeloSSD was added.
  7. The write back is more time near, it will also completely sync data on shutdown. It will detect when the computer was not shutdown properly and sync data before it restarts.
    (After a reset or cold power off, you will experience a little delay on the following reboot. This comes from the sync happening.)
  8. The Multi Thread performance is much better than before.
    ( This comes into effect when many processes read and write at the same time. Disk Benchmarks will show this performance gain in a section that´s usually called QD4 and QD16 )
  9. No reboot necessary after cache installation.
    ( No interruption, instant acceleration. Non Boot volumes only. All earlier versions required reboots.)
  10. The latency time for write operations was reduced.
  11. We solved a problem with hibernation on Windows 8.
  12. We solved a problem with recovery after a reset / power off in certain conditions.
  13. We solved a problem that could cause minor file system corruption in certain conditions.
  14. The cache installation assistant was improved.

I have 2.0.1.4 personal edition installed but this 2.1.0.0 update is not showing up in the automatic updates check…
Is this actually available yet?


#36

It was online, for a few days.
We deferred it until 5th April 2013.
Reason:
Problems on Windows XP and some minor new fixes.
So it will be up as 2.1.0.x around 5.th April.


#37

We have the update almost perfect for public release now.
It will take 2-3 days though. So around 7. / 8. April.
