    And when you restart your pc cache is gone.

    Not really, there are many options to prefetch it again, lock it to same content that had good hits before, flush it upon sleep/hybernation etc.
    I didnt overdo it with defer-write, moderately, in order to prevent any data loss if sudden power outage or crash that the ups can't handle. I am keeping an eye on drive integrity of file system, so all is good.

    Primocache has backup option, it writes the cache to SSD, then when PC boots it loads these files.

    Most people dont use that though, although i know it's quite common to use in the states, due to your "great" powergrid.

    Well in a country where you essentially never get power interruptions, there really isn't need for one.

    Only my server has an UPS. Cause I am not losing 1000+ movies, or TBs worth of shows. Then 10TB of games.

    Maybe, still depends on system stability and the grid.
    Getting an UPS for my desktop setup would be a major waste of cash, and probably for most people too regardless if they might have an HDD.

    As for primo cache, not really worth using it on W10/11.
