Hello, the csc folder is the storage folder for your offline file, and the est way to fix the bloat is to get rid of what you have and re-synchronise. However i would certainly look at the files before you did this to make sure there arent any files tha havent synchronised. To do this just open my computer, click tools at the top and then on folder options. Then click on the offline files tab. You should now be able to see a view files button. Click on this and you will be able to see all the data that is the csc folder in a format you can understand. If there is nothing in there that isnt mirrored on the server i would first to a checkdisk of your drive, as this can sometimes fix these issues.
note: this can take up to 2hrs plus and you cant use your pc during this time
type cmd and then hit enter
chkdsk /r /x c: (where c=windows drive)
a window will come up about not being able to lock the drive and do you wish to do this on reboot
then restart your computer and it will do the scan
When it makes it into windows check your event manager
select application on the left side
now in the right panel check in the source column for winlogon, this has the details of the checkdisk, check to see if there are errors, if not
Open my computer
click tools-->options-->offlinefiles tab-->view files
then select all files (ctrl-a)
then delete them.
then right click on your documents folder and choose synchronise (as you have a lot of data this could take a while)
this will reset your shared folders back to default as it will copy all the files back. The Delete files in the offline folders windows doesnt always delete all the files for some reason so i do it this way.
hope this helps
1. It is likely that you still have synched files from other users.
2. By following the above instructions to delete all synchronised files and start again
3. Yes, but deleting the files straight out of csc isnt the best way to do it.
