I have a Vista Business Edition laptop. The help desk guy before me setup a sync to sync an entire user directory on a network. The problem is the harddrive is filling up with to much data. I want to stop this process. I want to completely remove the sync and just have his "My Documents" sync. I have disabled the sync under "Offine Files" and it turns back on and begins to sync again after reboot. How do i kill this for good. Also... will rebuilding the profile fix this issue or is the offline files stored and used at the Windows level not the users profile level.

Under Vista it's a little different, you have to delete the partnership in the Sync Center. Take a look at this link, it explains how to stop it:
