Do buffers mess with verification?   [Discuss]

In Response to: [Discuss] Is there a copy with verify optionn and if not should there be? (John Leslie)

As Liviu pointed out above (http://www.ztw3.com/forum/forum_entry.php?id=121665), the verification switches built into the copy and xcopy commands don't necessarily work because they could be comparing file caches, not the actual contents of the disk.

With the amount of memory available these days, and with caches built into drives, what do you have to do to be sure you're really verifying? Reboot and compare?
