How to Change the Caching Mode on a Share

The requirements for this procedure is:

1) You have created a Share.  My share name is PS.

2) You are using Windows 8 or higher.  This gives you access to the Storage module.

3) You are logged in with elevated credentials.

 

Set-SMBShare -Name PS -CachingMode None -Confirm:$False

 

The -Name parameter is the name of the share to to action on.

-CachingMode has 5 potential values:

-- None: Prevents users from storing documents and programs offline.

-- Manual: Allows users to identify the documents and programs that they want 

        to store offline.

-- Programs: Automatically stores documents and programs offline.

-- Documents: Automatically stores documents offline.

-- BranchCache: Enables BranchCache and manual caching of documents on the 

        shared folder.

The -Confirm:$False is used to suppress the confirmation prompt.
