Activate Windows 7 file caching

January 25th, 2010 - 07:10 am ET by D. T.

The Windows 7 operating system offers a new function called Transparent Caching which allows you to cache a file which is accessed from a file server, speeding up the opening process in future. To be able to use this though, you firstly need to activate the option as it is not done so by default.

To do this, click on the Start button and in the advanced search field, enter the keyword “Strategy”. Among the results which will be returned, select “Change the group policy”.
