How to remove and offline sybc in Vista
Although I love Windows vista there are some things in it that are much harder then they need to be. One of these things is removing “Offline Files”. You’d think that in order to remove the sync you’d go through either “Offline Files” or “Sync Center” in order to remove an old sync. If you did think that way you’d be WRONG! Don’t worry… There are other people on the net that will tell you to:
Go to C:\Windows\CSC\v2.0.6\namespace
take owner ship of files
blah, blah, blah...
Well.. I tried out pretty much all the items that people were suggesting. They all didn’t work. If they did work they only introduced more issues. So you are probably saying how the heck do you remove the offline sync then. Well here it is:
How to propperly remove offline sync in Vista
Go to Sync Center
Right click on the sync that you no longer want.
click BROWSE CONTENTS OF
You will notice the files and folders that still have offline sync.
They will still have that little green sync orb as part of the icon.
Right click the file or folder
Un-select "Always Available offline"
Voila! It’s no longer synced.
Hope this will save you a ton of time.
