Folder redirected offline folders out of sync

A colleague of mine on his Windows 7 client workstation was complaining about his profile redirected offline folders that were out of sync with folders that were residing on file server. He tried almost everything to get those files and folders in sync, so finally last chance to rescue was to reset offline database and re-initialize the cache of offline files.
In order to do that, following registry entry has to be created:
FormatDatabase  DWORD (32 bit value) : 1
in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\CSC\Parameters

After rebooting the client, redirected offline folders started to work as expected.

Note: Before taking this action please make backup of your files, because unsynchronized changes will be lost.
