If you want to stop syncing to a mobile device, network folder, or any other kind of sync partnership you currently have set up in Sync Center, you must use Sync Center to end the partnership.

Open Sync Center by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, clicking All Programs, clicking Accessories, and then clicking Sync Center.

Right-click the sync partnership that you want to end, and then click Delete.

    * Some sync partnerships may not offer an option to delete the partnership. If they don't have this option, try opening the program or location where you set up the sync partnership to see if you can turn it off or delete it using that program or location.
    * If you just want to stop a current sync in progress, do not follow the steps above, which will permanently end the sync partnership. Instead, right-click the sync partnership, and then click Stop sync with  partnership name. The sync partnership will sync again at the next scheduled time.
    * Deleting a sync partnership rarely deletes any files or other information. It only ends the sync partnership. If you delete a sync partnership, it should warn you first before it deletes files or other information.
    * The ability to sync with network folders is not included in Windows Vista Starter, Windows Vista Home Basic, and Windows Vista Home Premium.
Have tried that, but did not have the posibility to "delete" partnership.

But now the old partnership has disapiered...
