Clearing Cache

Printer-friendly version

If you are experiencing problems when using CM/ECF the cache on your computer may be full.  Cache is a location on your hard drive where data is stored. When you search the Internet, your computer keeps track of every page you have visited and saves this information on your hard drive. If this file becomes large (i.e., many pages have been searched), the result may be a loss of data. (http://www.pacer.gov/psc/faq.html)
