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:

<b>"Share Name","File System Path","Cache Setting"</b>

Where <b>Cache Setting</b> can be one of the following:

<b>Manual caching of documents</b>
<b>Automatic caching of documents</b>
<b>Automatic caching of programs and documents</b>
<b>Caching disabled</b>.
OLCREG.BAT contains:
@echo off
setlocal ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
set qry=reg QUERY "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Lanmanserver\Shares"
set fnd=find "REG_MULTI_SZ"
for /f "Tokens=1,2*" %%a in ('%qry%^|%fnd%') do (
 set line=%%c
 set line=!line:\0=#!
 for /f "Tokens=2,6 Delims=#=," %%i in ('@echo !line!') do (
  call :out "%%a" "%%i" "%%j"
 )
)
endlocal
goto :EOF
:out
if %2 EQU "0" set cc="Manual caching of documents"&goto out1
if %2 EQU "16" set cc="Automatic caching of documents"&goto out1
if %2 EQU "32" set cc="Automatic caching of programs and documents"&goto out1
if %2 EQU "48" set cc="Caching disabled"
:out1
@echo %1,%3,%cc%
