    SettingSync Off - Files still coming


    Turned off SettingSync via registry
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\SettingSync\Groups

    but the SettingSync folder is still filling up.

    Any way to stop files from downloading?

    Control Panel/Sync Center/manage Offline files/turn off "enable offline files" that should do it for you.
