comment Windows 7 Home Premium transparently cache Synology NAS
I'd be curious if there are any solutions already out there. If there are, they would take a pretty darn good programmer. The way Windows currently does this with another Windows box is do "change notifications" by looking at the USN journal on the NAS side.
