I set up Offline files on my laptop running Windows 7, 64 bit. It seems to be making my computer lock up. I turned off my offline files, tried to delete the contents of CSC folder(because it is 30GB), which worked in XP, but access is denied in 7. There are some suggested command line fixes for Vista out there on the internet, to take ownership of the folder, but I am having no luck. Anyone encountered this yet?

I haven't used Offline Files in my Windows 7 yet, but it seems this web page tells how to do it:

This does not address my problem, I want to discontinue the Sync relationship and delete all the Offline files, which are stored in the CSC folder. I understand how to turn off Offline files but not how to delete them.

I thought those "temporary files" referenced by the article were the files in the CSC folder.  Did you actually try the instructions of the article to see if it did what you want?

Yes, I tried this. The Interface has changed somewhat.There is no access to Offline files in the Sync center, accessed them through the run line. There are no tabs on the Offline files unless Offline files are enabled. When I told it to delete Temporary files, it said it deleted something, but it did not delete the 30 GB file in my CSC folder. I was on my network when I tried this, will try doing it while off my network.

Please enable Offline files temporarily again and restart the computer. You have to do this to access the offline files, otherwise the following will not work because the button are grayed out.

  • Open the Sync Center
  • Select "Manage offline files"
  • Click on "View your offline files" on the General-tab
  • An explorer window opens
  • Double-click on computers
  • You should see now an icon for the computer from which you stored files from.
  • Right-click on the computer icon and choose "Delete offline copy"
Hope this helps.

This is not totaly fair of me, but manage offline files was not in the sync center in Windows 7 beta,  had to search for Offline files.
