Do not sync

Prevent syncing to and from this PC. This turns off and disables the "sync your settings" switch on the "sync your settings" page in PC Settings.

If you enable this policy setting, "sync your settings" will be turned off, and none of the "sync your setting" groups will be synced on this PC.

Use the option "Allow users to turn syncing on" so that syncing it turned off by default but not disabled.

If you do not set or disable this setting, "sync your settings" is on by default and configurable by the user.

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 or Windows RT
