Moving the offline files cache (CSC folder) in Vista

I have found, as many others may have, that my old partitioning scheme which worked great for XP is simply not sufficient for Vista.

A 20Gb boot partition does not go very far on my Vista Ultimate laptop, and this is made a lot worse by my habit of having loads of files synchronised to work offline, which uses up even more space on this critical C: drive.

Of course, it was possible to move the CSC folder under XP (although the caveat seems to be that you can’t put it back in the original location). Under Vista it is a slightly more long-winded process, but here is a great step-by-step procedure for moving Vista’s client-side cache by changing the appropriate registry keys and using the Windows Easy Transfer wizard (migwiz.exe) to help move the files themselves.
