Windows CSC reset: How to re-initialize the offline files cache and database (via MS Support)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/27

Every once in a while, the local synchronization of offline files mismatches the actual files.

Time for a CSC reset.

Note: you need to be Local Administrator on the machin in order to reset the CSC cache.

Use Reg.exe

You can also automate the process of setting this registry value by using the Reg.exe command line editor. To do this, type the following command in the Reg.exe window:

REG.EXE. REG ADD "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache" /v FormatDatabase /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
