So if you don't have expensive SSD and want to get accurate endgame analysis. This is rather trivial but I guess ppl don't know it so it would still help some.
Basically you need to move only 2-3 most common wdl dtz 6-men tables (you can always determine which these are according to the position you are analysing) into separate directory and point that one (together with 5-men directory) in SF path for Syzygy. Don't point other 6-men because it will kill the search speed totally.
Even though many of 6-men bases are more than 200MB each, it will still be enough even for machine with little RAM to load couple together with 5-men into RAM and have no slow down.
Slowdown mainly comes from the engine accesing all possible 6-men from the given position (which could be quite a few) even though most of the accessed 6-men are just useless positions deep in search that appear in only couple of % of the search nodes.
