    is there a tool out there that can find out how much actual cache your hdd has?
    (8mb-16mb)

    Yeah Thanks :)

    I already have ton's of software that can give me stuff like amount of sectors on a HDD, model #, Serial #, Physical and Logical Features etc...

    But none that I have or have been able to find on my own show the amount of Buffer Cache on the HDD. Might it be undetecible? Who knows? I guess it's not that important. thank you Though. I acutally forgot that I had CPU_Z until you reminded me of it :p

    I've got so many programs on my 120GB HDD that I have to upgrade now. My Desktop is a mess of icons.. lol

    Well thanks.

    Here's what Everest Home will show you for those disks. Note the buffer size in the second display. :)
