GPO for IE Disk Space Cache RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have configured a GPO to automatically check for new pages via GPO. In the same dialog, I am asked the amount of disk space to use in MB. I cannot specify a size larger than 256MB. What do I need to do to go bigger than 256MB?

    Thank you for posting here.

     

    As far as I know, we have to use customized ADM file to set IE Disk Space Cache. The Minimum and Maximum are defined in this ADM file. Please check the ADM file and modify "MAX 204800" to the value you would like to set. For your reference, the following ADM file set the MAX value to 1024000 kilobytes.
