share moved to new server

Question from a blog reader:

The share I made offline has been moved to a new server but offline files is trying to sync with the old server. Is there any way to make it sync with the new server? I do not want to delete the files and begin everything from scratch with the new server?
There is a tool called csccmd.exe to do it.

csccmd.exe /moveshare:oldserveroldshare newservernewshare

Note that this command does not move the data from the old server to the new server. It just updates offline files database with the new server name.

    Does this work in Windows 7 and does it work with csccmd.exe v1.0? Thanks.

    No, it does not work with Windows 7.
    Offline files is totally different on win7.

    Unfortunately there is no such tool for Vista and Windows 7. But Vista/Windows 7 CSC provides WMI APIS using which we can perform such operations. Check out the below link for more information on this.
