    Hi Folks, I'm not sure I posted this in the correct discussion category, but here I go. I have read conflicting advice on whether I should have disk caching turned on or off to prevent potential data loss or corruption, specifically on my Samsung SSD C: drive. By going to Device Manager then HDD and opening Drive C and the profile tab I see caching is on by default. Please clarify this for me if possible. Thanks, Richard

    Turned off to avoid the potential loss, I believe it says that on the screen where you can turn it on too.
