Windows 10 sometimes shows weird errors and 0x800710FE is one that appears when you delete a file or folder. Basically, it is a native Office File Synchronization issue that occurs in Win 10, though not enabled by default. This error restricts users from deleting a file or folder and shows that the component is unavailable in the system. Usually the offline files cache resides in CSC (Client-Side Caching) or in a database that actually helps OS to maintain synchronization with external server and internal components. When the database has some corruption, it will restart automatically but in case of a severe drawback, this issue pops up.

takeown /f "%windir%\CSC" /a /r
icacls "%windir%\CSC" /grant:r *S-1-5-32-544:F /t /c /q
icacls "%windir%\CSC" /grant:r *S-1-5-18:F /t /c /q
for /d %G in ("%windir%\CSC\v2.0.6\namespace\*") do rd /s /q "%~G"
  1. In the final step, type these commands and press Enter key after each of them and restrict Sync Center to start at every startup –
reg add "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SyncMgr" /v "StartAtLogin" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
reg add "HKCU\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SyncMgr\HandlerInstances\{750FDF10-2A26-11D1-A3EA-080036587F03}" /v "Active" /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
