I have a Windows XP installation on a Dell Precision workstation where the
drives apparently have no cache at all in the OS. There is extremely heavy
disk access on all operations and it doesn't feel like the OS has cached any
of the disk into memory. What are the options I need to check to help
understand if some default caching operations have been disabled for the
Drive is a RAID pair of 160GB Seagate SATA drives. Certainly they are not
speedsters, but we have other computers with the same hardware and those
perform much better.
