CSC (client side cache) index

When a shared network drive is set to 'Make Available Offline', The files are cached in the client side cache:
C:\Windows\CSC

But, the original filenames are lost and are replaced with some kind of hash or uid. I'm just curious to know where the original filename -> new filename map is stored. It must exist somewhere local because Microsoft supplies a tool that can recreate the directories and files from a CSC.

I believe the database is normally called 00000002 or csc1.tmp

It lives in your Windows\CSC directory.

Ok, they look like possibilities, but any idea how the data is stored in the files? I don't think they are compressed (because they can be compressed a lot further) but they contain no strings.

The best I can do is suggest that the guy writing this:

http://cfed-ttf.blogspot.com/2007/09/cscoffline-file-parsercopoier.html

might have a better idea.  He's got some perl scripts that appear to disect the file format, but I'm no perl expert, so I won't try understanding them!

Most people just use the MS tools, but I can understand your curiosity!

That's perfect, thanks!

I'll be able to figure out the format from the perl scripts.
