    The problem with mathematically calculating Flash wear is that it simply does not work like that. File systems like FAT and NTFS are not designed to be used on Flash! They make constant writes to the...

    Well, I was excited as all hell about using FBWF instead of EWF! Until I read about the inability to commit all changes immediately. That freaking blows chunks. It may be possible for one to read and...

    Actually, the Eee uses nothing more than standard "off the shelf" (so to speak) Flash chips and a typical Flash-to-ATA controller chip found in CompactFlash cards. Not the high end Flash chips that...

    Well,simply because of how much RAM I have. Defragging straight on Flash is like trying to murder it. The way defraggers work is designed for hard drives, not flash, so it spends a LOT of time...
  8. EWF memory usage limit != installed RAM, What's up?

    Hokay. Well, I'm not using EWF on a CarPC, but I am using it on two Flash-driven PCs (one with a built-in SSD, and one on CompactFlash). So far I've found that pretty much _all_ EWF-related...
