Q. How do I enable transparent caching in Windows 7?

A. Transparent caching is disabled by default. To enable it, use Group Policy, as shown below.

  1. Use the Group Policy Management console to open the Group Policy Object that will be used to set the policy. Make sure it's linked to the OU/site/domain that contains the clients that should use transparent caching.
  2. Navigate to Computer Configuration, Policies, Administrative Templates, Network, Offline Files.
  3. Double-click Enable Transparent Caching.
  4. Set it to Enabled and set the network latency that will be considered a slow connection. When the system experiences that much latency, it will use transparent caching.
  5. Click OK
  6. Refresh group policy on the machines
