Plextor Exclusive Technologies
PlexTurbo – Smart Cache Technology
PlexTurbo is PLEXTOR’s exclusive development of an intelligent “Smart Cache Technology”, using system RAM to greatly accelerate the SSD’s storage performance. In addition, PlexTurbo boosts the service life of the SSD and significantly increases access speed as well. After your PC boots up, the programs running before the last shutdown will be automatically preloaded, reducing the waiting time of running the programs. PlexTurbo also provides automatic load balancing that supports multiple drives and interfaces. Even if you use two or more PLEXTOR SSDs, you will still be able to use PlexTurbo.
- Life Extension Mechanism – Extends life of SSD flash memory by using smart algorithms to eliminate unnecessary writes.
- Safe Power Loss – Automatically protects against loss of data from the RAM cache during a power interruption or unexpected system crash.
- Performance Boost – PlexTurbo includes an Intelligent Boost Engine® (IBE) technology to automatically detect hot data (frequently accessed) and cold data (occasionally accessed) and applies the best caching patterns to read or write files faster than ever.
- Pre-Load – PlexTurbo can save the latest data and preload it in cache when you boot up the next time. This advance technology can shave precious time off when reading and opening files.
- Cache Sharing – PlexTurbo supports the connection of multiple PLEXTOR SSDs, sharing PlexTurbo’s benefits. (Maximum enabled up to 16GB cache of system memory)
- User Defined Cache – PlexTurbo can customize system memory cache size and release time of cache. (16GB/4hrs max.)
PlexCompressor -Intelligent Compression Technology
The storage capacity of SSDs is always a key point of consideration when deciding the best drive for you. PLEXTOR’s PlexCompressor utilizes custom, smart-compression technology to give users more storage capacity without impacting user experience and system performance.
- PlexCompressor Process – Files that have not been opened by the user for 30 days are automatically compressed, efficiently increasing storage space. The files are subsequently uncompressed when the user accesses it.
- PlexCompressor Operation with SSD Performance – The utility compresses only a certain segment of files at any given time to avoid occupying system resources.
PlexVault – Secured Private Space
PLEXTOR’s PlexVault software is aimed to provide a more secured space for private or sensitive data stored on your PLEXTOR SSD. Even if you are using a computer with others, you can still store your files safely and securely hidden on the computer.
- Show/Hide by Hot Key – Users can define a custom Hot-Key to set the size of their private storage space, and to Show or Hide the PlexVault space.
- Multi-User Split Self Drive – Different users can set up multiple PlexVault spaces within the same PLEXTOR SSD.
- Can’t Find It!!!! – When PlexVault is hidden, you cannot find the presence of PlexVault through the Device Manager / Disk Administrator / Archives. Your hidden files stay hidden.
