5. Disk Hacks > 55. Fix the Windows 95 File-Caching Bug

Fix the Windows 95 File-Caching Bug

Implement this hack to fix the “Typical Role of This Computer” bug in Windows 95.

Windows 95/98/Me provide a bit of disk performance control through the “typical role” settings system parameter accessible through the Hard Disk tab of the My Computer/Properties dialog, shown in Figure 5-17. This setting does not control the amount of memory allocated for disk caching by VCACHE; instead it sets aside a specific amount of RAM to hold look-up references about most recently used files and folders.

The number of folders and files tracked, and the amount of memory for storing the folder and file references, varies depending on the “typical role” setting, as listed in Table 5-5.
