Cleaning Up Offline Files

I have a user that is running out of hard drive space, so I need to help him clean things up. I noticed the csc folder where all of the offline files are stored has about 8 folders w/ 2-3 GB in each. He is the only one using this notebook, so I need to find out which offline folders I can delete. If I delete the offline files using Windows Disk Cleanup, will that delete all the offline files, or just his? If I delete the offline files then re-sync. will it recreate the offline files?

If he is the only person using the notebook, then what is wrong with deleting all the offline folders?  Isn't that what you want to do, since they are all his, no?  You could look at the foder creation date.  If only he was using the laptop at the time the folder was created, then clearly, they are his offline files, so delete them.  I hope that logic makes sense, or did I miss something.
