Data copy and caching bypass

Post by napoxog »

I didn't find answer in FAQ and this forum...
I wonder if the service or app mode utilize copying option to bypass system file caching to not bother other apps and do not consume additional memory?

The copy of the files is provided by CopyFileEx API function , so it's the operative system which actually is copying the files. So if the OS does some optimization behind the scenes, the the program is also using it, indirectly. No additional optimizations are done.
