I’m having a problem with trying to disable write caching. I have 4 hard drives, and am using XP Home SP3. I’d like to disable write caching, but in the device manager, under the drives’ properties, the options “Optimize for quick removal” and “Optimize for performance” are both grayed out, with “Optimize for performance” ticked. Underneath that, “enable write caching on the disk” is unchecked (that is not grayed out).
This is the same for all 4 drives. I’d like to select “Optimize for Safe Removal”, but it won’t let me. Can anybody help?
