Cant recover and protect Offline Files folder or C:\Windows\CSC\* RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having problems protecting the CSC folder to backup user data that hasnt synchronized yet or wont synchronize, when going to a recovery point and navigating to this folder I cant open the folder which tells me its empty but when taking ownership of the folder on the local workstation I can then browse 40GB worth of files using explorer but I still cant back up the folder.

    Is the CSC folder unsupported or is it a permissions issue because I know this folder cant be accessed by anyone at all and ownership has to be taken over the folder.

     This happens on all protected servers and workstations.

  • So if the backup doesn not have the permission to enter that folder then it will not be able to back it up.


    You said that you are waiting the folder to Sync and its not syncing. That means that the folder is unable to be synced with the File server because it has alot of data. What you can do is manuall resync folders and schedule the rest. After resycning finished then you can backup the folder on the File server.


    Hope that helps,
