[RESOLVED] Help with cache disk setup - was previously a data disk


Recommended Posts

OS: 4.7

 

I need to get this disk empty so it can be fully utilized as a cache disk. Last time, I think I made a formatting mistake prior to installing sabnzbd. Not sure if performance was affected, but I'd like to do it correct this time. There was nothing in the FAQ about this, and a search was not successful.

Do you wish to delete what is on the cache drive today?  Or leave specific directories and files on it?

Then just delete the stuff on it.

 

Share the cache disk if it's not shared.

Open the cache disk in Explorer.

Click on the first item.

Hold <ctrl> and click on the last item.

Hit delete and answer yes to the prompt window.

I thought this might be an option, but after making mistakes, I wanted to confirm. Thanks.

it is that simple.

 

 

 

If you are not 100% sure how stable the drive is, you could always run a preclear on it to make sure it is up to the job. If it passes, then you can assign it to cache.

 

you don't want to loose your data to a bad cache drive.
