Excluding Offline Files in Windows 7

I have a Windows7 64-bit Professional laptop.  I have a Windows 2003 Small Business Server.
I have enabled Offline Files and they are syncing.  However, it reports 2 files that it cannot sync because the file is being used by another program.  I do not want to sync those 2 files.
I have run GPEDIT.MSC on the laptop and gone to Computer Configuration / Administrative Templates / Network / Offline Files.  I have added "*.pkr;*.skr" to Exclude Files from Being Cached. I even added the same value to Files Not Cached, even though that setting is for older versions of Windows.  I've restarted, just to be sure.
If I run RSOP.MSC, it shows these values for both keys.
When I perform a sync, however, it still reports those 2 files as being in use and immediately stops the sync.  I wouldn't care much if it didn't stop syncing at that point.
I have allocated 200GB+ for Offline Files and it using 8GB.
Any suggestions?

Try deleting the version that is cached on the laptop, and then sync.

Since it's no longer cached on the laptop, it can't sync to your server, and your GPO should prevent it from synching to the Laptop.

I never even thought of that.
That did the trick.
