    At one time I right clicked on a folder on a mapped drive and checked the box for Available Offline. I regret that now, but cannot remove the sync relationship. I do not want this folder available offline. I do not want Windows 7 to try to sync this folder. I do not want the 2.3GB of space these offline files are taking up on my hard disk under c:\Windows\CSC\v2.0.6\namespace\networksharename.
    In the Sync Center, under View sync partnerships, when I doubleclick on Offline Files, it shows the folder networksharename (\\servername)
    When I right click on networksharename (\\servername) there is no option to delete.
    When I select networksharename (\\servername) and hit the Delete key nothing happens
    When I select networksharename (\\servername) and go the File menu, the Delete is grayed out.

    Here's what I've done that has NOT worked.
    In the Sync Center, under View sync partnerships, when I doubleclick on Offline Files, it shows the folder networksharename.
    I have deleted the offline copies of the files, but they continue to be recreated on my computer.
    I went to Sync Centre and selected Manage Offline Files on the left.
    I then selected the Disable Offline Files button and rebooted
    I then went to C:\Windows\CSC\v2.0.6\namespace
    I then took ownership of the networksharename folder and replaced permissions on all files and subfolders under it
    I deleted the networksharename folder
    I rebooted
    I went to Sync Centre and selected Manage Offline Files on the left.
    I then selected the Enable Offline Files button
    I rebooted
    I then went to C:\Windows\CSC\v2.0.6\namespace
    Guess what was there? The networksharename folder I deleted before was back.

    Any Suggestions?
    Additional information - In the Sync Center I removed the networksharename from the Sync Schedule, then repeated all the steps mentioned above, but when I browsed to the networksharename the window showed at the bottom "Offline Availability: Available", and again the folder was recreated under c:\windows\csc\v2.0.6\namespace.

    Maybe something here can help. It will show how to disable offline files or reduce the size they can take in your system.

    I found the answer. On the file server, the share's Properties window has a button for Offline Settings. In those settings the second radio button is checked "All files and programs that users open from the share will be automatically available offline"
    That's why no matter what I do on the Windows 7 PC it reverts back after I open the shared folder, the Server 2003 machine is overriding the Windows 7 settings.
