    intel optane 32GB caching


      Hey, I am not very knowledgeable on the topic, but is there a way to keep specific files cached in the optane 32GB drive, for example the operating system (or what ever the optane module normally caches for the OS, to ensure fast computer boots)? I noticed that if the computer is on for a very long time and many applications are loaded up, then I restart the computer, it will boot up slower than it would have if all those applications were not loaded.

          Hi GeneSmith334,

          Thank you for contacting our support community.

          We understand your concern regarding the  Intel® Optane™ Memory.

          We would like to let you know that as per Optane(TM) FAQ, the module accelerates the following files:

          • Start or boot
          • Search and find files
          • Save large files
          • Launch applications


          However, based on the issue description. We recommend you to make sure that the Fast startup of Windows(R) 10 is disabled.
