Should I change the role to Network Server?
Posted on 2006-07-24
I keep reading that a good tweak for Windows 98 is to go into the device mgr and change the typical role of the computer to 'Network Server' rather than desktop computer. This is because doing so increases the cache for the file names, and thus makes opening files faster. But what about someone like me, who only opens the same 30 files again and again. I have 512 mb of memory, so I don't mind giving up some to increase the cache size for the file names, but why should I? Since I only have 30 file names, I shouldn't need the larger cache anyway. Am I missing something here?
Thanks very much
