What happens when you open a file directly from network share (without downloading locally)
Posted on 2013-01-13
Just want to know what happens when you open a file directly from an SMB share/network share without downloading it locally first.
1-Is it downloaded first in temp and then displayed locally? (I doubt it as if you make changes, those changes are reflected back on network share)
2- is the file streamed directly to your machine?
The question arises as I am working on branch cache. If I download file, it is cached by the hosted cache server but what if I don't download the file first, I just double click it and open it from network share, will the file be cached?
