Windows 7: Sync store location problem

Sync store location problem

Is there any possibility of changing the store location for sync center? Windows 7 stores the cache on C (I think it's C:\Windows\CSC). The problem is that I need to share a folder which of 20GB and I've got only 16GB free on C.
Any solutions?
I've already read a short guide for windows vista (which probably doesn't apply to win 7 for some reason) - Moving the Offline Files Cache in Windows Vista - The Storage Team at Microsoft - File Cabinet Blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs. And it didn't really help.

Isn't there anyone who can help? You used to be a lot faster when it came to this type of situations. The fact is that I think that not being able to choose where you can cache the sync information is one of the big drawbacks of Windows 7.

This article: Windows 7 Offline Files Location indicates you can move the location but doesn't say how.
Everyone whos using the synchronization features of Windows 7 should know the location of the offline files in Windows 7. If the offiles files folder is getting too large, you could remove some of the offline files or move the offline files folder to another partition.
Must be a way via the Sync Window - Manage Offlien Files button, but I have offline files disabled so can't check it.
