Delete or Reinitialize offline files cache in Windows XP

If you have your user's My Documents redirected to a server and you are running out of space and not sure where it went, check the C:\Windows\CSC folder. This is a hidden folder. The CSC folder is where all the Offline Files are kept on Windows XP/2003. 

To free up space from the Offline files, follow the directions below.

On Windows XP/2003 machines we can delete or reinitialize offline files/CSC cache in any of the following ways.
  1. Open My computer from start menu
  2. Click on Tools
  3. Click on Folder Options
  4. Select Offline Files tab
  5. Press CTRL+Shift and click on Delete Files.
