List of new stuff in BITS for Windows 7
- Peer caching now uses Windows BranchCache. This new peer caching model replaces the model used for BITS version 3.0. For more information, see Peer Caching.
- Added a more flexible resource access model that allows applications to associate a pair of security tokens to a BITS transfer job. For more information, see Helper tokens for BITS transfer jobs.
- Added the BITS Compact Server, which is a stand-alone HTTP/HTTPS file server that provides the ability to transfer a limited number of large files asynchronously between computers.
- Added more granular bandwidth throttling. For more information, see Group Policies.
