Offline Files - CSC-Cache Issues

I have a customer running Windows 7 Pro that wanted the ability to search files on the network drive so I enabled Offline Files.  The search worked for a few days, however now the end user is complaining that some files that she updated are missing data.   Files she know she made changes to.  I poked around and noticed the mapped drive where the Offline Files is located shows Offline File System: CSC-CACHE.  I have visited the Sync Center and it shows errors.  When I try to "fix" the sync error "Keep both files"  it generates a new error stating the files cannot be found.  I don't want to rebuild the offline files as I don't want to loose the newer files on her local computer.   Any suggestions?

Here is what I did.  I copied the complete CSC-CACHE folder on to a different local folder.  I then disabled/enabled the offline files so it would recreate a new offline files sync.
