Deleting cache on a difference disk

Jan 15, 2016

The Delete Cache from Selected Device(s)... context menu option allows you to manually delete cache on a difference disk. The option is only available if the vDisk cache mode is set to Server Persistent Cache.

Note: Write cache on a Difference Disk is not automatically deleted if that file becomes invalid. Files marked as invalid should periodically be deleted manually.

To delete a cache on a Difference Disk:

  1. In the Console, right-click on the vDisk that is associated with difference disk files to delete. Select the Delete Cache from Selected Device(s) menu option. The Delete Cache for Devices dialog appears.
  2. Check each target device box for which the cache should be deleted, or click Select all to delete all cache files associated with this vDisk.
  3. Click Delete to delete the cache files from the server.
