BranchCache is a feature of Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 7 client that enables clients in a branch office to securely retrieve files that are cached locally instead of having to retrieve files from a home office server. Since branch offices are typically connected over slow wide area network (WAN) links, this reduces the utilization of the WAN link and increases application responsiveness as seen by clients.
This guide describes how to migrate a server that is using BranchCache capabilities to another machine running Windows Server 2008 R2. Migration involves moving current BranchCache cache data and registry settings from a source server to a destination server
