What does "write cache enabled" mean?
Posted on 2005-03-22
In the system log of a server I saw today I found the following warning:
Event ID 32
The driver detected that the device \device\harddisk0\dr0 has its write cache enabled. Data corruption may occur.
Funnily enough, the server in question has been having issues with data corruption. Can anybody give me more info on what this message means, how I can disable write cache and what the performance implications of doing so are?
