    Deleting offline folder from Window 7

    I have installed Windows 7 to my laptop three weeks ago. Before installing this OS, there was a shared folder on the desktop which has an offline connection with my laptop. That folder does not disappear from the desktop even after upgrading the OS. How can I delete it?

    Re: Deleting offline folder from Window 7

    You tried removing a folder from offline files.


    1. Open up registry editor (WARNING: Only for Advanced Users)
    2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Csc
    3. Add a new key (folder) called Parameters
    4. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Csc\Parameters, add a new DWORD called Format Database and set its value to 1
    Hope this helps.

    Another method are to removing a folder from offline files.


    Go to run and type gpedit.msc (or the domain GPO editor) under Computer Configuration > Administrative templates > Network > Offline files.

    hii

    Its really a simple thing to do .. To delete your offline folder just follow the below steps :

    - Under folder options you will see offline files tab .. you have to press ctrl + shift there and click delete files..
    - Doing this will prompt you with a message saying to re-initialize the cache
    - Click yes there ..and again yes to restart your pc

    You are done with deleting the files and also reinitializing the cache ..
    thanks

    Hi,

    Have you looked in Tools-Folder Options - Offline Files tab? This gives you
    the opportunity to view and delete files in the Offline Folder on the
    laptops. Also a good thing to do might be to "sync" the laptop and the
    "initialize cache" by holding down "ctrl and shift" when you click the
    "Delete" button to empty the offline files.
    thanks..

    dear::

    In Windows 7 there is no user interface to delete Ofline Files cache (CSC cache). The only way to delete cache is using registry key. Detail steps are given below.

    Open Registry editor (Execute Regedit from Run window)
    Traverse to the path path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Csc\Parameters
    If Parameters key does not exist under CSC you can create a new node with that name.
    Now in the Parameters node create a new registry value with the name FormatDatabase of type REG_DWORD (i.e DWord 32-bit value)
    Set the data in this new registry value to 1.
    Close registry editor.
    Reboot the machine
    The above steps can only be done from an administrator's account. We can do the above steps from command line too. For this you just need to run the below command from elevated administrator command prompt.

    reg add HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Csc\Parameters /v FormatDatabase /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f


    If you run the above command from a normal administrator command prompt you will get "Error: Access is denied" message.

    HELLO GUEST

    I had tried removing a folder from offline files a while back and run into the same problems.
    In the end I had to reenitialize the offline file cache:

    1. Open up registry editor (WARNING: Only for Advanced Users)
    2. Browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Csc
    3. Add a new key (folder) called Parameters
    4. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\Csc\Parameters, add a new DWORD called FormatDatabase and set its value to 1.


    Hope this helps.
    Thanks And Enjoy

    Regards Libin

    dear friend,

    You can delete offline files from windows 7 by manually or from the registry editor.

    1. Manually- If you can access your offline folders then follow these steps to delete offline folders. You have to re-initialize the file cache. After that you have to create a system restore point,to prevent your computer from restoring the offline folders if it needs to be restored.

    Open the offline folder you want to delete.
    Go to the Folder option.
    Select the Offline tab.
    Press Ctrl and Shift key together.
    Select the delete option appeared.
    Your computer will ask for a restart-click on Yes to restart.
    After the restart click on the Start button.
    Right click on Computer & select Properties.
    Select System Restore option from the left pane-provide administrator password if prompted.
    Select system restore tab in the new arrived window & select Create option.
    Now you have to add description to set that time as a restore point.

    2. From registry editor- If you can't access your offline folders then follow these steps to delete offline folders.

    Click on the Start button.
    Type Run in the search box & click on the option appeared.
    It'll open the Run window.
    You may also open it by pressing Windows key+R button together.
    Type regedit in the edit field & press enter-it'll open registry editor.
    In the registry editor, insert the following subkey-

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\NetCache
    Key Name- FormatDatabase
    Key Type- DWORD
    Key Value- 1

    After that click on OK.



    Hope these info will help you a lot.
