    Minimum disk cache size is high.

    Can anybody give more insight into what SiSoft Sandra is talking about here with the disk cache size and where to find the system.ini file it refers to?

    A throwback to olden times, disk cache is now in disk drives themselves and is not changeable.
    AIDA as some humorous advice like "To increase performance, install faster CPU" and "To increase memory ad more RAM".

    Those statements in the help file are hopelessly out of date. The last version of Windows in which the cache could be controlled by system.ini was Windows ME, released in 2001. In modern 32 bit versions of Windows the file is used only to control the 16 bit subsystem. All other settings will be ignored. In all 64 bit versions of Windows system.ini is totally obsolete, existing only for the benefit of old applications that may wish to play with it. The OS itself will never read the file.

    That's funny. I was only a youngster back in Windows ME day's so probably why I didn't click onto this. Thanks for clarifying.
