Redirect Remote Desktop Cache files

Asked By 420 points N/A Posted on -

I’m using Windows XP on my Presario CQ41 laptop. My laptop is partitioned into 2 drives I put all 58.8 GB on my C: drive and 173 on my D: drive. All the installed program is on the C: drive, now I only have 4.2.GB free memory space on my C: drive.  On the other hands my D: drive has a large amount of space It has 60.2GB free memory space. I only use the D: as a back-up for my software, games, movies etc.

My remote Desktop cached files took a large of memory in my C: drive and My Windows machine is getting low on memory space .  So I need to do, Disk Cleanup to take some cache files.  Most of my data is on a second physical D: drive that has lots of room.

Is it possible to reconfigure the Remote Desktop client to use a folder on D: for its cache instead of filling up my C: drive? Where
are these settings kept?

Redirect Remote Desktop Cache files


Hi there, Mikki here.

There is a way to redirect  the remote desktop cache of your computer, what you need to do is add some values in the registry that would tell to put the remote desktop cache to another location, you need to use registry editor for this. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Go to Start then find Run, in Run type regedit.
  2. Once regedit is open go to this location:  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftTerminal Server Client
  3. From there right click and create a new REG_SZ value and name it to BitmapPersistCacheLocation.
  4. Set its data accordingly, put the location you want as the data to Redirect the Remote Desktop Cache.

I hope this helps you in your situation.
