Let’s say we have pinned a share on machine A for offline availability. Now let’s say the share is moved to machine B. But our offline files cache still points to machine A and tries to synchronize local cache by trying to contact machine A which is down. This will cause synchronization failures which we can see in the sync center.
In such a case one solution is to delete the local cache and mark the share on machine B for offline availability. This requires an additional effort and is not appropriate solution if the user has edited the files which are saved on the local cache but not yet synchronized with the server share. In such a case all the changes written to the local cache will be lost.
CSCCMD with moveshare switch can be used to solve this problem. This tool can update the local cache to point to the share on machine B and therafter CSC will do the synchronization with the share on machine B.
If there are any files changed locally, those also will be replicated on the share on machine B. Below is an example to update the cache with the new location of the share.
To move share from machineAshareA to machineBshareB run the below command.
