When you open a file davfs2 must store it locally until it is closed again. From the basic design of davfs2 there is no way around.

You can try to minimize the use of the cache by reducing the cache size or by setting 'delay_upload 0'. Both may slow down the file system significantly.

Commenting out options only means to use the default values.

I searched for a way to disable the davfs cache but couldn't find one so thought that I ask my question here.

I tried to set the cache size to different values including 0 but no go. I also tried to comment out the cache options in the config file but still no go ...

If there is anything else that I can try, please let me know.

(Note: upload size limit is set to 16384 kB, after insertion of the required escape characters.)
