Client Side Cache after leaving domain

By mattbrussel ·
Tricky problem...

After disjoining a notebook from a domain, how can you access the CSC client side cache that is owned by a domain user, but you can not log in as that domain user, because the machine is no longer in the domain.

For weeks prior to disjoining from the domain, the notebook was physically disconnected from the network, but able to 'access' the redirected 'my documents' using locally cached credentials, and access the client side cache contents of the policy based redirected 'my documents'.

Mow that the machine is disjoined, there is likewise no dropdown list, to select the domain, and so there is seemingly no way to log on with the previously usable but locally cached credentials of the domain user.

Clearly the redirected 'my documents' is cached, because prior to disjoining from the domain, you could logon with cached credentials and view the cached contents, and now you can still 'browse' the network, even though the notebook is NOT connected to any network, in any way, but the redirected contents, that lived in a \\server\share, the \\server\share still shows up in a browse list, again noting that there is NO network connection, but the browse shows the \\server\share, but returns an access denied, seemingly because no local user has permissions to access the contects of the locally cached 'my documents' that was previously redirected.


Is there a way to simply crack the contents of a locally cached copy of the redirected 'my documents', or somehow authenticate locally with the cached credentials of the previous domain user, noting that the disjoining also removed the domain from the logon dropdown list...

From Windows Explorer, click Tools then Folder Options. Go to the Offline Files tab and click the View Files button. It should show you all the cached files.

again, problem is that I can not logon as the use that has access to the CSC for their offline files, the machine is no longer in the domain, but the cached credentials are still here, and the cached content is still here, it was accessible immediately before disjoining from the domain, but not after...

Can you log into the box at all? As the local Administrator? You should be able to see the files still.
