Cache Integrity

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

In order for BITS to download content from a peer server, data in the peer cache on that server must not be corrupted. If data in the peer cache is corrupted and BITS encounters an error while reading the peer cache, BITS will attempt to delete the cache, and then recreate the cache to handle future requests. If this attempt is not successful, the cache might have to be manually cleared.

BITS has encountered %1 error while reading peer cache information. BITS will now attempt to delete and recreate the peer cache.



BITS has successfully deleted the peer cache. All the files cached until this point have been removed. The peer cache will be recreated again as needed for handling future requests.
