SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario. You enable the Limit disk space used by offline files Group Policy on a computer that is running Windows 7. You open Sync Center in Control Panel, you click Manage offline files, and then you click Change limits on the Disk Usage tab. In this scenario, the Offline Files Disk Usage Limits settings do not reflect the settings that are defined in the Group Policy object (GPO).

Notes
  • The Limit disk space used by offline files Group Policy setting has the following path in the Local Group Policy Editor:
    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Network\Offline Files
  • After you enable the Group Policy, you can find the corresponding settings in the following registry entries:
    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\NetCache\CacheQuotaLimit

    HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\NetCache\CacheQuotaLimitUnpinned
