Does anyone have a solution for this?

From all the research I've done this seems to be quite common in that a stand alone PC is synchronising folders (even though this should only really happen in an exchange environment).

The best I can discover is that it starts when your .pst files goes over 1.6gb - but I can't see how to stop it, or what it's synchronising with !!

Since the PC hangs while this is going on I really would appreciate some guidance as to how to turn the syncronisation of (or will this cause other problems?)

Many thanks
