Offline Files

I had a user log on to my PC with his Roaming Profile. He is no longer using the PC so we removed his local profile - however my own profile is including his files!  I have removed them from the offline files on my computer but when I sync it brings them back!

Any ideas?

This is one of the reasons that it's suggested that you don't include My Documents with a roaming profile... it's better to use the My Documents Folder Redirection for those.

You probably have to reset the Offline File Sync Cache. To do this, open Windows Explorer > Tools > Folder Options > Offline Files.

Then hold down the CTRL and SHFT keys and then click the Delete... button.  You will get a warning asking if you want to re-initialize the cache.  Click Yes, and then reboot to finish.

There is no delete button - only delete files which if I hold the keys down as you suggest and then click on it it does not have the effect you mentioned.
