Just an update

Sync works fine now with the upgrade but I have noticed that if there is a sync confliv=ct you are not automatically warned, you have to check the sync centre
and you cannot sync shared files

If you want to do this from the command line, from an elevated prompt, you can disable the "offline files" service:

sc config CscService start= disabled

note: I believe the space after '=' is required, and none before it.

I'm not sure, but you may have to stop the service first:

sc stop CscService

Disabling the service will show up as 'disabled' in the UI in the tutorial.
