Is the mechanical hard disk cache as large as possible? Method for improving use speed of mechanical

Now many people will use mechanical Eagle brand. The most important thing to choose mechanical hard disk is the use speed of mechanical hard disk. The use speed of mechanical hard disk determines its performance. Many people think that the larger the cache of mechanical hard disk, the better. Is that right? How to improve the use speed of mechanical hard disk? This article brings you a way to improve the use speed of mechanical hard disk. Let's have a look.

Isn't the cache of mechanical hard disk the bigger the better?

Nowadays, mechanical hard disk is used less and less. When the storage capacity of solid-state disk has not reached the level of mechanical hard disk, that is, the price of solid-state disk is too high, the technology has not reached the level of mechanical hard disk, and there is still a gap with mechanical hard disk in terms of stability. In the next few years, when solid-state disk technology has made another breakthrough, the corresponding price will drop, The market for mechanical hard disks is getting smaller and smaller.

Now when users use mechanical hard disk, the cache used is relatively tens of megabytes, so the mechanical hard disk will not have too much cache. Increasing the cache will increase the cost, and the price is too high., Users will choose solid-state drives, and the market share will decline, so the mechanical hard disk will not have too much cache.

How to improve the use speed of mechanical hard disk?

1. Defragment disk

This is useful for mechanical hard disks.

The establishment is carried out in the way of in-depth arrangement.

2. Increase memory

At least more than 4G. Better 8g or above. Because the larger the memory, the more cache the system automatically allocates to the hard disk, which can significantly improve the read and write speed of the hard disk. Win7 above system, do not use third-party software, direct system management is the best. XP system can be assisted by software such as primo cache.

3. Cache mechanical hard disk with SSD

This technology is now very popular. It uses a small capacity SSD, such as 16g or 32g, to cache the mechanical hard disk. The principle is to copy the hot data to the SSD and temporarily read it from the SSD.
