Recover Windows XP Offline files from local cache

By , 2009-11-04 14:35

Windows XP offers a handy feature that allows you to take files stored on a network drive and use them even without a network connection. The files are then re-synced back to the server the next time network access is detected. Unfortunately, the service, while a fantastic idea, is not very stable in practice. In case of errors, there IS a procedure to recover files from the local cache. It involves using version 1.1 of Microsoft’s csccmd (not available directly on MS website.)

(Note to Microsoft: if it isn’t ok for me to host this file, then let me know and I’ll remove it.)
