    Our users "my documents" folders are set up for redirection to \\ourserver\users

    We have an XP based machine ( machine X ) that was used by person A, each time they logged off it synchronized as expected.

    However machine X is now used by another user B.

    Whenever user B logs off user A's offline files still keep synchronising, have deleted all the files from the offline folder I still cannot see a way of stopping user A's files and starting the new user B's files sync.

    User A's files were accounting type files and are sensitive files that should not be viewed by others, however by still sync to the offline files folder they can be easily viewed.

    Any thoughts as how I can stop this and re-direct the new users files to sync as I need to release this pc for general use.

    Cheers.

    You need to unmark the old users' folders for offline use, apply, reboot and make sure that the machine can see the domain and be made happy on that front, log in as the new user and then mark those new folders for offline use.
