In Vista / Windows 7 it was the infcache.1 file you deleted and magically your USB devices worked again once connected.

This doesn't seem to exist in Windows 8 so I'm wondering what the alternative is? I have a drive that doesn't work in one port and it's down to Windows being stupid (yet) again.

CacheSet from sysinternals should work in a situation like this. –  Ramhound Dec 17 '12 at 14:46

@Ramhound wrong question? He asks about the Infache file in Driverstore folder and not about the NTFS Metafile cache in RAM. Eric Cantor maybe MSFT optimized the procedure so that the cache is no longer needed. –  magicandre1981 Dec 17 '12 at 19:13
    
@Ramhound how is that meant to work? Input would be greatly appreciated –  Eric Cantor Dec 17 '12 at 23:25
