I want to disable the prefetch cache settings. Is there any way to disable them? I tried deleting the files from prefetch folder but site throws exception.

I believe you should be able to use Sitecore's config patches to remove the caches. For example:

        <database id="core">
            <dataProviders hint="list:AddDataProvider">
                <dataProvider ref="dataProviders/main" param1="$(id)">
                    <prefetch hint="raw:AddPrefetch">
                        <patch:delete />

    Reason for the error is that the Sitecore.config file defines a path for those prefetch configs that you deleted. You have to apply a patch for all 3 databases: core, master and web.

    @JTC - I want to stress that you should use a patch file to override the sitecore.config as Trayek described!
