[dsdp-tm-dev] Re: File Cache / Memory increase when opening FTP files

Yes, RSE uses a temp file cache which resides in the RemoteSystemsTempFiles project. The benefit of this is that it avoids unnecessary re-download for files that have not changed (in other words, it's a persistent cache, which is an important advantage over plain
Eclipse File System (EFS) based remote linked resources without RSE).


The size of the cache can be configured in the Preferences (I think that 500MB is the default). That page also has a "Clear Cache" button.

When you edit a file again which you've been editing before but has changed on the remote side, the same location in the cache is used thus overwriting the previous version of the file. So the cache should not grow unnecessarily.

If you have any more questions, just let us know.

Thanks,
