SuperCache Alternatives

    SuperCache is described as '5 intelligently stores frequently used disk data in system memory. The memory used to store the data is called a cache. SuperCache 5 intercepts requests for disk data and, when possible, fulfills the request using the cache instead of requesting data from the disk'. There are more than 10 alternatives to SuperCache for Windows and Linux. The best alternative is PrimoCache. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try HDDTurbo or ReadyBoost. Other great apps like SuperCache are Primo Ramdisk (Paid), eBoostr (Paid), MaxVeloSSD (Paid) and Gavotte Ramdisk (Free).
