We have 3 old XP machines in our network. I know they are no longer supported, but I am just curious as to why all of a sudden they stopped syncing offline files with the 2008 server and if there is a way to resolve it until we replace them.

Offline file sync usually stops when the destination moves or is gone for some reason.  It can also have problems with large/corrupted files.  The event log generally has enough hints to tell you what the issue is.  Sometimes you just need to reinitialize (delete) the offline cache.  That would lose any non- synced changed files - so be careful.

ok found out what happened. IT was an old server that we removed. The XP Sync is still trying to sych to the folder on the old server. How do I remove the old server from the sync and just keep the new server sync?

Thanks.
