SCCM Local Cache Location on a Client Computer

The SCCM local cache on a client computer is very helpful for straight forward deployments, but what if the machine runs into any problems during the deployment or download phase?

The data that is downloaded to the SCCM local cache location could get corrupted or partially downloaded. What if the user disconnects their laptop from the VPN mid download, but then still expects everything to work perfectly well?

If you are experiencing any of these issues with any software deployments or catalog deployments not working, it may be that the software you are trying to deploy has already been attempted to be installed and the older version is sat in the SCCM local cache location. It could also be that the files in the cache are corrupt.

To try and fix this, you can empty the cache and try the installation again. To clear the cache, you should do the following:

Clear the SCCM Local Cache Location
