    Hey there :D

    I searching now a while for an answer, but seems no one ask that question before? What happend when reurnil used up the disk/ram cache full?
    I ask because i let my computer (server ^^) run for couple months, and i am not present. And when i went back to the desk i read offten the message that the disk cache is full and i have to reboot :blink:. Is this a security risk or does it changes something at the real partition?

    Thx for any hints :]

    Hello Retuuuuuuurn and welcome to the forums :)

    When the disk cache is full it will be like the situation where Windows believes your hard disk has no more space. If this happens, simply restart the computer to reset the cache. If this happens too frequently, consider increasing the percentage of free space allowed for the cache and adjust until comfortable.
