I dont think file caching works over SMB connections,

Hm. l: is my net use for\tools via my (currently) 700kbs broadband and wifi:

C:\test>net use l: Local name l: Remote name \\\tools Resource type Disk The command completed successfully.

The first time I download procexp.exe it takes 34 seconds for the 2.5 MB file:

C:\test> prompt [$t] $p$g [ 4:41:09.11] C:\test>copy l:\procexp.exe . 1 file(s) copied. [ 4:41:43.33] C:\test>dir procexp.exe 11/07/2012 17:38 2,691,192 procexp.exe 1 File(s) 2,691,192 bytes 0 Dir(s) 101,746,388,992 bytes free

After that it is almost instantaneous. This is done by hitting cursor up and enter as fast as I can:

[ 4:56:14.29] C:\test>del procexp.exe && copy l:\procexp.exe . 1 file(s) copied. [ 4:56:14.34] C:\test>del procexp.exe && copy l:\procexp.exe . 1 file(s) copied. [ 4:56:14.38] C:\test>del procexp.exe && copy l:\procexp.exe . 1 file(s) copied. [ 4:56:14.42] C:\test>del procexp.exe && copy l:\procexp.exe . 1 file(s) copied. [ 4:56:14.47] C:\test>del procexp.exe && copy l:\procexp.exe . 1 file(s) copied.

Between .04 and .05 of a second. That can only come from local caching.

With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.

The start of some sanity?
