Microsoft MyDocuments Synchronization Issue to a Windows 2003 Server

we have a client that is having Microsoft synchronization issues in her my documents folder. One of the things we think that might be causing these issues is the size of her mydocuments folder which is around 3GB.

Has anyone received errors when synching the mydocuments folder on a laptop with a windows 2003 server.

We have tried many fixes that are known on the internet but are still getting errors.  I do not beleive there is any security rights with any of the files either.

Client is runnning Windows XP Pro with plenty of horsepower behind it.

If this is not a good solution for synching files anymore any suggestions on another software that makes sense?

Disk quota enabled on Server 2003?
some files don't syncronise, such as .pst files, database files, certain archive files etc...these errors are normal....

minjakon: No disk quota enabled.

In addition to the above. We are under the impression that the maximum cache will not expand to more than 1.9GB of data.  We tried to expand this amount in the cache value, but it defaults back to 1.9GB.

We found the answer. We logged into the server. Changed group policy for offline files to 10% of the drive. Re-Booted laptop to refresh the group policies and we confirmed that the solution is now fixed.
