Client-Side Caching - Windows XP

Under the scenario of retrieving the contents of a stolen laptop, I
have been tasked with extracting the contents of the client-side
caching directory under Windows. The organization is syncing files
between the user's network drive and the 'My Documents' folder on the
local device. In offline mode, the files are cached in a binary
format. I can grab the directory (C:\WINNT\CSC\, as an example) by
mounting the volume under BackTrack but from there I am coming up
short. Is there a way to read the binary data contained in this
directory to surmise the contents of the offline files? Any
information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
