Windows 10: Is there a way to a clear USB cache file?
Is there a way to a clear USB cache file?
There was a great post in the SevenForums titled "General Fix for USB Driver Problems". I can follow all of the steps in that post on my Windows 10 machines except for deleting the INFCACHE.1 file. Is there the equivalent to the INFCACHE.1 file in Windows 10 that contains USB driver info? Is there an equivalent (or better) process for cleaning up USB driver problems/conflicts in Windows 10?
I work with/repair USB devices and can have over a dozen different devices a day plugged into my computer. I regularly clean out the hidden devices in my device manager, but have had a few conflicts I can't resolve and am wondering if I am missing a USB cache file that needs to be rebuilt.
Thanks so much!
Did you ever find a solution? I came across your post and want to delete the USB driver history and start again
No I haven't, Ohwell. All I do is go into my Device Manager, show hidden devices, and uninstall each old USB driver. But I am still having problems with USB devices. I don't know what the INFCACHE.1 (from Windows 7) equivalent is in Windows 10.
Can anybody help us?
Thanks, Topgundcp. I had forgotten about that tool. There is a post here that explains how to use it.
I will report back with my success using it with Windows 10.

In File History > Advanced settings of W8 and W8.1, there was an option to adjust the offline cache size (default 5%). In W10 this option is gone! So I have two questions:
