 [-AsJob] [-WhatIf] [-Confirm] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Remove-BCDataCacheExtension cmdlet deletes the cache file that is specified.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Remove data cache extensions

PS C:\> Get-BCDataCacheExtension | Where-Object -FilterScript {$_.MaxCacheSizeAsPercentageOfDiskVolume -Eq 10} | Remove-BCDataCacheExtension

This command removes data cache extensions configured to occupy ten percent of disk volume. The command uses the Get-BCDataCacheExtension cmdlet to get cache extensions, and passes the results to the Where-Object cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. That cmdlet passes on objects that meet its requirement to the current cmdlet. That cmdlet removes those extensions.

PARAMETERS

-AsJob

Runs the cmdlet as a background job. Use this parameter to run commands that take a long time to complete.

The cmdlet immediately returns an object that represents the job and then displays the command prompt. You can continue to work in the session while the job completes. To manage the job, use the *-Job cmdlets. To get the job results, use the Receive-Job cmdlet.

For more information about Windows PowerShell background jobs, see about_Jobs.

Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: 

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: None
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-CimSession

Runs the cmdlet in a remote session or on a remote computer. Enter a computer name or a session object, such as the output of a New-CimSession or Get-CimSession cmdlet. The default is the current session on the local computer.

Type: CimSession[]
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: Session

Required: False
Position: Named

Prompts you for confirmation before running the cmdlet.

Type: SwitchParameter
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases: cf

Required: False
Position: Named
Default value: False
Accept pipeline input: False
Accept wildcard characters: False

-DataCacheExtension

Specifies the data cache extension that this cmdlet removes. You can obtain a BranchCache MSFT_NetBranchCacheDataCacheExtension CIM object by using the Get-BCDataCacheExtension cmdlet.

Specify either this parameter or the Path parameter, but not both.

Type: CimInstance[]
Parameter Sets: DataCacheExtension
Aliases: 

Required: True
Position: 1
Default value: None

-ThrottleLimit

Specifies the maximum number of concurrent operations that can be established to run the cmdlet. If this parameter is omitted or a value of 0 is entered, then Windows PowerShell® calculates an optimum throttle limit for the cmdlet based on the number of CIM cmdlets that are running on the computer. The throttle limit applies only to the current cmdlet, not to the session or to the computer.

Type: Int32
Parameter Sets: (All)
Aliases:
