  1. Offline Files


    Good Morning


    I have an issue with offline files not syncing correctly to a shared drive network. I have a Dell XPS 15 laptop that is trying to connect 8Gb of offline files to a local network.

    Everytime it connects to the network by LAN connection rather than syncing and updating the files required it brings up a sync conflict and stores all information in the cache folder.


    Any information so I can make sure that when connected to the network it overwrites the files on the network.


    Kind regards


    James Mckenna

    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.

    RetailDemo Offline Content?


    Was cleaning up my 10162 install using cleanmgr. One option on the list was "RetailDemo Offline Content", it was 100MB. Not sure what this is, before I delete it. Suggestions?

    Offline files in Windows 10

    Hi Dave,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer. I understand the frustration when things don't work the way it should.

    Please follow the below steps to move offline file cache in Windows 10:

    • Create a folder for your offline file cache. Something like D:\Offline.
    • From an elevated command prompt type the following: Takeown /r /f C:\Windows\CSC.
    • Open the Sync Center and go to Manage Offline Files.
    • Click Disable Offline Files and restart the machine.

    • From an elevated command prompt issue the following commands:

      (or whatever your folder name is, but be sure to use the quotes if you have space(s) in the name).

    • Reopen the Manage Offline Files window and Enable Offline Files.
    • Restart the machine.
    • All files/folders that are made available offline should now be redirected to whichever folder you specified.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please post in case you have any further issues, we will be glad to help you further.

    Thank you.
