Howto disable file folder synchronization?

Windows XP synchronizing to the server.

A customer had asked me to disabled the synchronization of her workstation.

A brief history of this request. Every time she log-off or shutdown her workstation, the workstation is synchronizing to the file server. This is not a bad process but added delay when you are ready to go home from long hours of staring to your workstation.

Her "My Document" folder was set to the network drive, for example \\KINGNET\johndoe, where KINGNET is my domain network and johndoe is the user. The Windows XP, VISTA or Windows 7 have the option to make this folder disabled, yes it is enabled by default.

This will synchronize the files and sub-folders every time you log-off to your network to provide up to date copy. This is perfect approach to provide offline copy to your mobile users…

Homeowners Facing Foreclosure
1 out of every 200 homes will be foreclosed upon. For a city like Washington, D.C., that translates to 3,000 Washingtonians losing their homes to foreclosure each year. - Mortgage Bankers AssociationEvery three months, 250,000 new families enter into foreclosure. - Mortgage Bankers AssociationOne child in every classroom in America is at risk of losing his/her home because their parents are unable to pay their mortgage. - Based on information from the Mortgage Bankers Association.A slower real estate market can translate into falling prices and home values. As a result, homeowners who opted for adjustable rate mortgages may now find that as their mortgage rate adjusts higher, their home value is lower and therefore refinancing is no longer an option.Six in 10 homeowners wish they understood the terms and details of their mortgage better.…
