With Windows XP (SP2)
How can I turn off the synchronizing feature?
It turned automatically when I joined to my local domain and pointed My
Documents to a drive on the server.
The user has admin rights. I've un-checked all folders in >Tools
>Synchronize...
but each time I look they're checked again.
Thanks.

Dave,

You may have to check with the Policy on the domain. Somtimes "the man" ha
more rights on your machine than you do when connected to the domain.

Short answer: You can't turn off "Synchronization" until you move "My
Documents" from the Network drive, and back to the Local Machine drive.
Long answer:
"My Documents" is a System Folder that is integral to a Windows XP Local
Machine / Users schema.
Ergo, Windows XP Local Machine / Users MUST have access to "My Documents" in
order for a User to log onto Windows XP.
When you move "My Documents" do a network drive,
a replica of "My Documents" is cached on the Local Machine for each User so
that, should the network drive be unavailable, Users can log onto Windows
Local Machine using that CACHED copy to have access to their files and
folders, and create new files and folders, until the network drive becomes
available.
In order for all of that to work properly, the CACHED version of "My
Documents" and the Network version of "My Documents" are periodically
synchronized.

Here is how we have handled this and it seems to work great:

Right Click Start -> Explore -> Tools -> Folder Options -> Offline
Files -> Uncheck 'Enable Offline Files'

I am having similar issues except I am using Vista on my local machine. My goal is to move the "Documents" folder from my server to my hard drive so it is not synchronizing at all. Is this possible?
