Each user has an online home directory that is stored on a server. On their machine they have a "My Documents" folder, which is actually their remote home directory. When they make changes to files in this folder the changes are stored locally in the %systemroot%\csc folder. The changes are not made on the server until the folders are synchronized. This happens automatically at logoff, or it can be done manually.

I need to know what the Offline Files Viewer is they are talking about in the solution.

The Offline Files cache is a folder structure located in the %SystemRoot%\CSC folder, which is hidden by default. The CSC folder, and any files and subfolders it contains, should not be modified directly; doing so can result in data loss and a complete breakdown of Offline Files functionality.

If you suspect corruption in the database, then the files should be deleted using the **Offline Files viewer**. After the files are deleted out of the Offline Files viewer, a synchronization of files may then be forced using Synchronization Manager. If the cache still does not appear to function correctly, an Offline Files reset can be performed using the following procedure:
