Stop Syncronizing unwanted files.

I am running remote profiles and syncronizing files with a file server. On some multi user computers files of users that no longer use it still get synchronized even though their profile was deleted and the off-line files were deleted. How do you stop this? They still want their file syncronized for their own computers.

This is strange cause the folder redirection is a "User Configuration" setting. How can you tell their profile is in sync, if you don't login with their credential?

In folder options. I look at offline files and they are still there. I also see them during a syncronization cycle being syncronized in the dialog box.

I go to the computer properties/advance tab and settings. I delete the profiles that are no longer needed.
Then I check the documents and settings on the c: drive to see that all of the files are removed. I clean up any residuals from their. I also check users in the control panel, but I never have found the user still left after step one.

I wasn't able to delete the CSC folder. Some of the files were in use. I maybe was able to delete some of the files but many were giving the files in use error. I even changed security on some of them, but had no greater success.

Try in "safe mode".
It is normal not to delete a file or two while in safe mode, but you will manage to clean most of them ...

This was a partial success it cleaned up most of the files. I haven't had time to go back and try again to see if I can clean up the rest.
Thanks.
