Do you have directory compression turned on? Try with it off...

You cannot tell Windows to use its cache - it does it automatically. the best you can do to tweak this behaviour is to change the system control panel option for performance to use cache as if the workstation is a server - optimise for background processes.

You can try turning off last-access-time on the partition (google or read some past posts) so Windows won't try to update the atime flag all the time, that might help, but I've not seen any difference (but I don't have 44k files!)
