I do know about the high ram issue when using Fancycache with some applications. Others had reported the same thing. In my case, I am targeting Diskeeper. It is the application that I use the most and hate it when it use all my free ram. Computer use different drivers and applications with background services can have an impact on the behavior of Fancycache.
If you have notice the high ram, Fancycache L1 cache ram usage is memory assign + 512MB (overhead) @ 4k and ram usage for L2 SSD cache equal to cache assign.
(2GB L1 + 512MB) + 8GB L2 = 10.5GB. There is a bug in the L2 where the assign cache is mirror in the ram and not getting release when use with some applications.
My previous laptop Dell E6420 does not have this problem. The only ram usage was the L1 cache.
After I had move to a Lenovo X220 then I see that bug. Somehow the drivers does not like Fancycache. Recent update to the drivers and version .8 of Fancycache had improve the high memory usage when using L2 SSD. Free physical memory had been minimum and release of free ram, after Diskeeper defrag finished, is noticeable on my laptop.
So my conclusion is that drivers and applications will affect the behavior of Fancycache caching system. This is what I observe with my laptop and not a rebudo again your opinion.
Anyway, let take the problems that you have with Fancycache and write it in the forum here so we can help the developer improve Fancycache. I see that you have written the most wanted features in the suggested forum and totally agree with you on that.
