Sync Center problems, please help!! :( :(

so i created a sync between my laptop and my desktop just to see how the feature works, and now it took up a large chunk of my hdd (around 5 gigs), and i have no idea how to regain that space. There's no options in the sync center in control panel to remove sync partnerships.

Can someone please help me?

Have you tried to do a disk cleanup to see if the data is there and remove it that way?

Have you tried disabling offline files in the sync center?

Have you tried the delete temp files button on the disk usage tab?
