Increase the default disk cache size

If you still don’t have the resources and the tools to do constant backups of files from remote workers and traveling staff, so you need to rely on technologies like offline files on windows XP to keep the files of remote users and traveling staff in synch with shared files on the local network.

Symptoms : one of the default limitations offline files has is the limit of 2 GB of cache storage, which might soon run out.

Follow the steps below to accomplish the task:

1. Click on start--> run--> and type gpedit.msc

2. Under administrative templates--> select network--> offline files

3. On the right window double click--> Default Cache Size

4. Click on Enable and specify the percentage of the amount of the hard drive space you want use for offline files storage. After you finish click on OK.

Note: one of the things you might notice after you do this is, that the slide button to increase the amount of disk space for temporary offline file storage is grey-out, that’s normal, because the settings governing the cache size storage is on the group policy now.
