Message "warnings occurred while windows was synchronizing your data" when logging off PC

A new PC was setup for a user in my absence. When logging off the PC a message pops up saying "warnings occurred while windows was synchronizing your data". It then lists a number of files that failed offline synchronization. Once closed, the PC logs off as normal.

I want to stop synchronizing offline folders. I have checked win explorer/tools/options/offline files and there is an option to disable offline synchronization. However all our other PC's have this option enabled but do not receive a message about synchronizing the data when logging off. So there must be another setting.

1. Copy this to a KeepProgressLevel.reg file:
REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Syncmgr]
"KeepProgressLevel"=dword:00000001

Rather then just stopping the warning message pop up, is there not a way to stop it trying to sync offline files in the first place when logging off?

You probably need to wipe out the Offline File Data as well....
How to re-initialize the offline files cache and database
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230738
I have a simple process that resets Offline Files in general.... Will also extract any Offline files not synched to the network, for data safety.....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Please do not reinitialize the CSC database until you verify all files are in synch...

To make sure that the Offline Files are all in Synch.....

If the Offlines Files folder shows files not synchronized, or only local copy exists, please follow here....

Get the following from the web....

Features and functions in version 1.1 of the Client-Side Caching ...
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/884739

DL it here....Copy it to C:\windows\system32
http://stingr.net/ftp/pub/csccmdv1.1.zip

Then run the following command....

csccmd.exe /extract /target:C:\ExFiles /recurse
or
csccmd.exe /extract /target:C:\ExFiles /recurse /onlymodified

If you see it extracting data, then go to c:\ExFiles and see whats present....

Once this is verified.....

Rt click My Computer>Properties>Advanced>User Profiles, and remove non primary profiles from the machine....

Then once the user profiles are removed.....

start>run>mobsync
Uncheck all locations in the Synch Manager, then click the Setup Tab
and uncheck all locations under the Logon/Logoff and Idle page....

Then. Paste the following commands into the CMD window.
(Or make a batch file, and share it with your friends... )

start>run>cmd

reg add "hklm\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache" /v FormatDatabase /t reg_dword /d 00000001
reg delete "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache\shares" /f
reg add "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\Shares" /ve

reg delete "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\netcache\AssignedOfflineFolders" /f
reg add "hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\AssignedOfflineFolders" /ve

Then log back in, and the Adminstratively Assigned offline files key will rebuild. Might take 2 reboots....
However, if you arent using Administratively Assigned Folders for use opffline (via GPO), then it shouldnt have anything to resycnh to.... And hence your desired result....

Syncmgr is attempting to ync FIles from your Handheld PC (H/PC) or like.
Try uninatalling the syncmgr mobsync.
