Offline files recovery
Posted on 2011-02-17
Ok, we had an instance where a server crashed and we had to rebuild it from scratch.
We got al the users personal files back. They were mapping a network drive to a private share.
Apparently, 1 user has been working on a cached copy locally (offline folder) for months and we didn't realize it. His profile has him pointing to a non existent server.
So he finally called and asked why he kept getting syncronization errors. Since I knew it was trying to talk back to the old server, I just disabled the offline folders. Now he can't access any of his data.
There are several files and folders in the %Windir%\CSC folder that contain the cached copy but how d I get them back to a readable format?
The folders are all labeled d1, d2, d3, etc....
