2 Partitions

Making 2 partitions of your computer’s disk is highly recommended. It is also recommended to use a non-system drive for the NEWARE software directory.

The use of NTFS file system and disabled write-caching are preferred to ensure data security. (The NTFS file system provides better performance and security for data on hard disks and partitions or volumes than the FAT file system used in some earlier versions of Windows. Disabling write-caching is mainly to protect data from loss or corruption. This functions for the whole disk.)

  • Convert Drive to NTFS

    How to convert a partition from FAT / FAT32 to NTFS file system. Just type “cmd” in run, and type “CONVERT volume /FS: NTFS”. Convert drive to NTFS
Caution Sign

NTFS and write-caching disabled

1. NTFS enables file size larger than 4GB, preventing a writing error or data loss when database file larger than 4GB.
2. Disabled writing-caching will write data to file in real time, preventing unexpected data loss or corruption.

  • Disable write-caching

    b)Just right click on target disk, choose “Properties”. Then find your disk under “Hardware” tab view, click “Properties”, Navigate to “Policies” tab view at the prompt. Uncheck “Enable write-caching on the device”. disable writing-caching
