Exclude files bigger then …Mb.

One thing that really need to be added.

The most acceleration is achieved on small files, so it doesn’t really need to cache big files.  I think it must be an exclude rule: “Exclude files bigger then”

Sorry for my English. My native is Ukrainian.

    It is true that small random accesses to flash media are much faster than a hard drive (small files). But the difference in speed with RAM is relatively tiny, ergo this feature would have to be selectable for each type of media. Hard drives go much faster than flash drives in long consecutive accesses (big files).

    So… In short, Exclude files (bigger/smaller) than N MB for cache device (X).

    Absolutaly agree with the proposal.
    Also – do you cache files that are read only in suqential read mode? Reading of such files is faster from HD and caching of them to flash has not sence IMHO.

    This feature is already there:

    in your ‘Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\eboostr’ folder

    create or change the settings.ini file to contain:


    (for a max filesize of 6MB)

    I think the point now is to have individual control for each cache device.

    Is there a document / helpfile / wiki / website / … where this kind of options is described ?
    I’d like to play with some of them as my cache fill never reaches 50% (of a 4Gb USB Stick) and I think I do have some ideas on which files might be usefull (helpfiles in dev env for instance).
