I have a user that has a Sharepoint folder localled synced to their Windows 10 PC.  Now I want to remove access to the Sharepoint folder for that user.  Once I remove the access, I notice that the Sharepoint files that were synced, are still on his computer.  Of course he has no ability to upload any updates anymore to the sharepoint, but the files previously are still on his machine.  Is there a way to remotely remove those files when cutting access to a user in Sharepoint.  This seems like a pretty big deal when it comes data security.
