You may want to enable this if you’re worried about data consistency in the event of a system crash. For instance, if you’re running a database from the NTFS volume, you’d normally want as few layers of caching as possible, in order to guarantee the correctness of the data.
This option is on by default.
To disable the caching layer for a specific volume, select the volume in the Volumes section of the preference pane, and check the box “Disable file system caching”.
This setting is governed by the control file: .Tuxera-NTFS/disable-caching
With this file being present in the root directory of a volume when mounting, caching isn’t activated. To manually revert this option, delete the control file.
