Fix: BranchCache feature not working for shared files in Windows 7

This article may interest you, if you are unable to access a shared file from Windows 7 using the BranchCache feature.

In this scenario, you enable the BranchCache feature on a branch office network. You open a shared file on the central office network in read/write mode from a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 on the branch office network. Other users in the branch office network try to open the same shared file. The BranchCache feature does not work in the branch office network. Other users have to download the same shared file from the central office network and then open the downloaded file.

This behavior causes poor performance and unnecessary usage of wide area network (WAN) bandwidth.

Users experience this issue, because the BranchCache module cannot cache files that are opened in read/write mode.

To resolve this issue, Microsoft KB2591402 recommends you download and run Hotfix 363558 solution.
