Solution



1)      Close the CCS console.

2)      Delete the isolated storage from below location

%appdata%\Symantec

Here there will be some files under CCS folder. Delete the CCS folder.

Launch the CCS console and verify the asset system workspace.

 

Note: Please refer the following link in case isolated storage location is not available in above mentioned path.
