    how do you turn off file sync + offline files so?

    Sure the answer is somewhere on the forum so sorry to repeat the question.

    I have created a new default mandatory profile and despite my best efforts i can't get it to stop file sync when the user logs off.

    Well thats a bit of a white lie because if i log into the machine as admin and desable file sync and offline files then when the new user logs in and then out they don't sync.

    Trouble is i don't want to have to go around to 500+ machines and do this.

    Is there a group policy setting that i can apply or another way?

    There is a GPO setting. Find the setting with this spreadsheet:

    Yes use Group Poloicy to do this

    look in the computer section of GP (make sure this policy is applied to the pc object) and turn offline files off there... i cant tell you exactly where to look since im at home.. but it does work i have done it before.

    Also turn off offline files on your server shares that do not require it.

    Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Network -> Offline Files

    Lots of goodies in there to play with

    in addition, you may wish to turn it off on the local machine as well...

    folder options 'offline files' tab
