This guide will help you improve the performance of your SATA hard drive by enhancing write caching. This guide is written for use with Windows Vista.

If you are not sure whether or not you have an SATA drive in your computer, please check with your manufacturer.

A quick warning: If your computer is not connected to a battery backup and you lose power you have a increased risk for data loss or corruption. If you are using a laptop, the chances of this are unlikely as you have a battery in the laptop that will act as a power source if there is an outage.
