Cached information - Slow

When our users attempt to access a network drive that they have not used in a while, it takes a while (10 seconds) to open the drive.  After that initial step, opening the drive is very quick.  It is as if that process is cache din the computer's memory and enables the action to react quicker next time.

My question is, is there a way to keep the network reaction quick, even for data on the network that is not usually accessed by the user?

If there are lots of items in any network share it will always take a little longer to open the first time.  This is caused by Windows trying to generate icons for each and every file and folder in the share and can be mitigated by changing to the detail or list view when in the folder.
