I recently purchased a Sony Vaio T series Ultrabook that has a 24GB SSD cache that uses the ExpressCache software from DiskKeeper. It looks like this is an OEM only solution and I don't see any software downloads for it. How can I do a clean install on this machine without losing the ssd cache? I have a Windows 8 Professional license I'd like to use for this machine.

Are you sure that it is using Express Cache and not something like the Z77 chipset with Intel RST? – kobaltz Feb 10 '13 at 4:57
Worst case, pull the platter out, put in an old one and see if you can enable caching. Make sure that your BIOS is set to RAID instead of ACHI – kobaltz Feb 10 '13 at 4:58
Express Cache was installed when I got it. The exact model is SVT15112CXS. – Barry Feb 11 '13 at 15:38
Just wondering, why is it important to keep the cache? Do you mean to ask about the drivers and how to properly set it up after installing a new OS? – Ярослав Рахматуллин Jul 20 '13 at 12:15
