Has anyone advice or done any tests - is it faster to set "Cache files created in a Capture NX 2 batch process" on or off?

Intuitively I have always had this set to ON, but why and is it really helping? I occasionally process 200-300 NEF into jpeg in one go (resizing, applying some final output sharpening, and switching to sRGB), so I would of course want the batch to complete as quickly as possible.

I understand that "Cache files saved within the Editor" is advantageous and always have that option ON as well, but I don't have any hard information on what if anything this option is doing for me in BATCH mode and what effect "cache limit size" has on any of this?

The other thing is - why does it leave a residue out there in the cache directory - is that only advantageous if i do SUBSEQUENT edits to these images? In my case, big batches are (normally) done merely to create final jpegs, so I don't do any subsequent edits, in which case maybe I am better off with this option turned off?

I already have the cache placed on a secondary drive separate from my main drive for images, so my question is not really about that aspect.

Hopefully the answer here will help many (if we can find it), Thanks again, SteveK
