What is “C:\Windows\CSC” folder ?


The CSC (Client Side Cache) folder is where Windows keeps the information about offline folders.

This folder location  can be changed to some other location by editing the registry key DatabaseLocation under the following node.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache

Tips to clear this cache:

Set the following registry key and restart the computer.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC\Parameters]
“FormatDatabase”=dword:00000001
