Clear Cache

With each website visit, a browser will "save" pieces of it for future reference.  The browser can display files stored in the cache much faster than it can pull fresh files from a server.  The use of cached files helps reduce page load time.

When to Clear the Cache?

Slow response times.  If the user's system stops responding or the user experiences slow file server response times while reviewing documents in the Lexbe eDiscovery Platform (LEP) even with good Internet speed, try clearing the cache.

Free up space on a computer.  The cache fills up and needs to be cleared (at least once a quarter) so the browser will function most efficiently. 

Protect privacy.  Clearing the cache removes the browse history.
