Extract Offline Files From PC That Won’t Boot

I found this on the Internet to help me retrieve data for a client that needed to restore data worked on a laptop that could not boot that needed to sync the data back to the server: The file needed CSCCMD 1.1 can be downloaded here.

If you’d like to extract the unsynchronized offline files from the cache of
another machine, you can copy that cache over and point CSC at it.

The following are the detailed steps:

1. Disabled the offline caching on the current box from Tools -> Folder
option -> Offline files

2. Rebooted the machine

3. Moved the original CSC folder from C:\Windows (%windir%\CSC) directory
to another location

4. Copied the CSC folder from defunct PC to C:\Windows (%windir%\CSC)
directory.

5. Enabled the Offline file caching on the box

6. Ran the extract command at
csccmd /EXTRACT /RECURSE /TARGET:c:\csc-files

The data should be extracted successfully then.

As the Original CSC folder has been moved to another location we had to
move it back to C:\Windows

To do this, please do as follows:

1. Disable the Offline file caching under Tools-Folder option- Offline files

2. Rebooted the client

3. Moved the Original CSC folder to C:\windows after moving the copied one
to another location

4. Enabled Offile caching

Moreover, the following information regarding CSSCMD command is for your
reference:
