"Make sure you have an image backup before installing"

July 05, 2012  |  By blegs385521

 |  Version: VeloSSD 2012 2.0.0.5

Pros

None - could not install the software.

Cons

Did not seem to successfully install. Recommended uninstall procedure is extremely complicated - see summary below.

Summary

WARNING - CREATE A DISK IMAGE OF YOUR SSD DRIVE BEFORE INSTALLING THIS SOFTWARE.

I tried to install this onto my Corsair 180GB SSD to cache my 2TB HDD in Windows 7 Professional 64 bit. The installation went fine, following which I was prompted to reboot. I did so, and my computer went to the Windows screen and hung there. I waited for 1o minutes but it did not progress passed that to the Windows sign-on screen. I powed down, tried again with the same result. Fortunately, I had an image backup from the previous night, so I was able to restore my system with no harm. There is no documentation for this product on the web site, and the only support is a user forum. I posted my problem, and was first given an extremely lengthly method to remove the software, which involved, among other things, multiple registry entries being deleted, modified...etc. I was asked to post my disk configuration, which I haven't gotten around to yet, but it is extremely generic - 1 SSD, and 1 unpartitioned HDD, so if it doesn't work on this setup, I would be surprised if it works anywhere.

Response to my support request in the user forum (this is the only support for the product):

When an installation does not work you can easily restore your system
with booting the Windows DVD and following the instructions below.
---> There is no data loss at all<---
But you need to be precise in following the instructions.

I will post them with screenshots again when i got more time.
Or maybe someone else wants to do this.




How to manually remove a VeloSSD Cache.
-good for benchmarked crash and burn systems,
-short, clear procedure, max. 10 minutes to go.

So it works:

-click next until you see

On the next screen click "command prompt"

A Dialog named "Load Hive" pops up.

The Click Edit->Find and enter the following int the find dialog

This will be maybe 10 times but can also be less or more.
