hdparm write caching setting


i just noticed that hdparm (5.2) has a "write caching" setting and its turned off on my system. is there any reason for this being turned off? i figured it might improve my hd performance but i thought i'd checkhere first.

thanks!

Check to see if your drive supports it first.
