Yes, RSE uses a temp file cache which resides in the
RemoteSystemsTempFiles project. The benefit of this is that it avoids
unnecessary re-download for files that have not changed (in other words,
it's a persistent cache, which is an important advantage over plain
Eclipse File System (EFS) based remote linked resources without RSE).

The size of the cache can be configured in the Preferences (I think that
500MB is the default). That page also has a "Clear Cache" button.

When you edit a file again which you've been editing before but has
changed on the remote side, the same location in the cache is used thus
overwriting the previous version of the file. So the cache should not
grow unnecessarily.

If you have any more questions, just let us know.

Thanks,
