Running out of disk space because of offline file synchronization.

I have the an issue with a Dell Desktop where the users My Documents folder is on a network drive.  The size of this folder/files is 2.3 GB.  The C:\windows\CSC directory structure accounts for almost 10 GB out of 18 GB of the C: drive.  The user has the sync settings to sync only at logoff and he doesn't turn his PC off very often.  

Why is the C:\windows\CSC so large and does it ever purge old data after a sync process completes?  

Can I logoff/sync & then delete the C:\windows\CSC structure and let it build it again?  I am contiually running out of space on this PC.

No, you can't. Don't manipulate the CSC folder directly. Instead, use this method:
