How to Change the Cache Size and the Drive Letter Designation

You can change the cache size and drive letter designation directly from the Application Virtualization node in the Application Virtualization Client Management Console.

noteNote
After the cache size has been set, it cannot be made smaller.

To change the cache size

  1. Right-click the Application Virtualization node, and select Properties from the pop-up menu.

  2. Select the File System tab on the Properties dialog box. In the Client Cache Configuration Settings section, click one of the following radio buttons to choose how to manage the cache space:

    ImportantImportant
    If you select the Use free disk space threshold setting, the value you enter will set the cache size to the total disk size minus the free disk space threshold number you entered. If you then want revert to using the Use maximum cache size setting, you must specify a larger number than the existing cache size. Otherwise, the error “New size must be larger than the existing cache size” will appear.

    • Use maximum cache size

      Enter a numeric value from 100 to 1,048,576 (1 TB) in the Maximum size (MB) field to specify the maximum size of the cache. The value shown in Reserved Cache Size indicates the amount of cache in use.

    • Use free disk space threshold

      Enter a numeric value to specify the amount of free disk space, in MB, that the cache must leave available on the disk. This allows the cache to grow until the amount of free disk space reaches this limit. The value shown in Free disk space remaining indicates how much disk space is unused.

  3. Click OK or Apply to change the setting.

To change the drive letter designation

  1. Right-click the Application Virtualization node, and select Properties from the pop-up menu.

  2. On the File System tab in the Properties dialog box, in the Drive to use field, select the desired drive letter from the drop-down list of available drive letters. This setting becomes effective when the computer is rebooted.

  3. Click OK or Apply to change the setting.
