How does readcaching work? Does it actually increase disk wear/reads?

Post by user637745 »

So i have been monitoring disk reads with iotop and psexec in windows, and with cache enabled, the amount of reads from disk is quite alot higher with cache enabled in qbittorrent.

Can anyone shed some light why this is?
