    How to Manually Sync Offline Files in Windows


    Offline Files is a feature of Sync Center that makes network files available to a user, even if the network connection to the server is unavailable.

    Users can use offline files (if always available offline to keep a copy of the files stored on the network on your computer. This allows users to work with them even when they are not connected to the network or a server is unavailable. The next time the user connects to the network or the server is available, their offline files on your computer will automatically sync to the network files on the server to update.

    Users can also delete their existing Offline Files sync schedules at anytime.

    Users will also be able to manually sync their offline files to update them as needed at anytime while connected to the network server.

    offline files acces denied (file name database.xml)

    Hi,

    Access issues with offline files can be due to the changes in the configuration of the device and/or the host/server. To better understand your concern, we'd like to know the following:

    • If you're using the Windows Sync Center application to access/manage your offline files.
    • If you're referring to the use of the OneDrive application.
    • If your device is managed by a domain or an organization.
    • The exact error messages that you're getting when accessing the files.
    • The version and build of Windows 10 that you're using on your device. To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this

      link
      .

    In the meantime, we'd recommend performing the following steps to verify the status of the offline file access on your device:

    • Search and launch Control Panel using Cortana.
    • In the Search Control Panel box, type offline.
    • Under Sync Center, click Manage offline files.
    • In the Offline Files pop-up window, check if its enabled.

    We look forward to your response.

    How does Windows 10 conversion setup offline OneDrive files by default


    When I migrate to Windows 10,

    • Placeholders will be deleted from my local OneDrive folder.
    • Per folder selective sync will be available.
    But that leaves a question…

    • Will per folder selective sync be turned OFF by default at conversion?
      • This means offline files on the local OneDrive folder will be orphaned.
      • Therefore, to avoid confusion, I’d need to either (a) delete them since they’re available online and since sync is off, or (b) turn on selective sync for the folder they’re in and sync all files in the folder, or (c) do nothing if OneDrive automatically deleted them in the conversion.

    • Or, will per folder selective sync be turned ON by default for folders that have offline files in them, syncing all files in such a folder?

    • Or, will OneDrive try to sync all folders to my local OneDrive, overwhelming the smaller drive on my laptop?
    It seems to me this would be important to know, but I've not been able to find anything on it.

    Offline files not syncing

    Hi Ramsha,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community forums.



    This could be due to the incorrect caching set for the network folder. You may want to try the steps listed below and check if it works.



    • Open Share Properties
      of the network folder and click on Advance sharing.
    • Choose Caching and select
      No files or programs from the shared folder are available offline.
    • Save the changes and reboot the machine to see if it works.


    Hope it helps.

    Regards,

    How do I enable Offline Files in Win 10 Home without upgrading to Pro?


    Me too, and I also have Home. Apparently a lot of others share your frustration.

    A Microsoft representative has said that..
    ...but several others in that thread had the same "click "Manage Offline Files" under Sync Center, nothing happens" problem as you. The suggestion form another Microsoft representative was to...
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...1-841e46a70799

    But apparently no one had a cscsvc.dll on their machine...

    Edit: ...neither do I on my W10 Home machine - I do have a cscsvc.dll on my Pro machine though (and I can enable and use offline folders on that). Looks like Karthicka_R got it wrong and this is only for Pro. *Sad
