Hi all,

I've been playing with Windows Server 2008R2 as a desktop OS for software development. The problem I'm having is that as soon as any substantial file operations occur, windows uses ALL available memory to cache these files. Most of the time this is totally unnecessary as the files aren't frequently accessed. How can I change this cache behaviour to be less aggressive and leave more free RAM for programs?
