In tip 9936, we generated a CSV format output of the offline cache settings for Windows workstation and Windows Server shares, using the net share command.

I have scripted OLCREG.BAT to output the offline cache settings for a Windows XP workstation, using information from the registry.

When you type OLCREG in a CMD.EXE window, the output is displayed on the console in the following format:

"Share Name","File System Path","Cache Setting"                              Where Cache Setting can be one of the following:                              Manual caching of documents                              Automatic caching of documents                              Automatic caching of programs and documents                              Caching disabled.
OLCREG.BAT contains:
