How to Enable Cache on Windows

Pros & Cons of Enabling Cache

Pros: Uses faster system memory to temporarily queue write commands until Shell Thunder is ready to commit them to disk. This improves performance as the application doesn't need to wait for the drive to continue operating.

Cons: In the event of system failure, power outage, or accidental removal, data loss or corruption may occur. Be sure to always safely eject before disconnecting Shell Thunder if cache is enabled.
