Editors' reviewCacheman is like a tailor for your system's disk caches, giving you the ability to modify the chunk size, icon cache, memory, and optical disk drives. Using optimization wizards, Cacheman detects your system's most efficient disk-cache settings and makes modifications to improve performance and stability. If you prefer to tweak these settings yourself, Cacheman provides a user-friendly interface with slide adjustments for individual cache settings, or four pre-set values based on what your system is used for the most, such as file-sharing or network applications. You can save different settings as profiles in order to apply your custom configurations quickly.
Cacheman also includes a memory-recovery module and various system tweaks that let you define things such as the Start Menu delay time, or the time it takes to shut down a frozen application. The comprehensive help files explain cache subjects in easy-to-understand terms and offer guidance for proper cache settings. However, you can seriously impair your system's performance if you tweak your settings incorrectly, so newbies should stick with the wizards. Cacheman's optimization will make your system run noticeably faster.
Cacheman is an application designed to improve the performance of your computer by optimizing several caches, managing RAM and fine tuning a number of system settings. Auto-Optimization makes it suitable for novice and intermediate users yet it is also powerful and versatile enough for computer experts. Backups of settings ensure that all user modifications can be reversed with a single click. Cacheman takes Memory Management to the next level. You can define which applications have the most importance to you. When your system runs out of RAM Cacheman will take it away from non essential programs and give it to the important ones. This is a improvement to the default Windows memory management. You can even limit the RAM amount a specific application can use. Cacheman works as a system service, minimizing resource usage and tweaking Windows at system-level.
