|It also appears in the Windows Startup list (msconfig). You can't switch off it via msconfig, altough you can uncheck it, but after restarting of Windows, it appears again. To switch off mobsync.exe do the following steps: Double click on "My Computer", choose "Tools" from the main menubar then select "Folder Options...", then select "Offline Files" pane and finally uncheck "Enable offline files".

|When trying to delete it from c:\winnt\system32 and c:\winnt\system32\dllcache it rewrote itself back. I restarted in safe mode and renamed all the mobsync.* files to crap.* then disabled it from restarting. After restartng in normal mode it was gone. Very Strange...almost virus like. rmckinjr|
|Many businesses with corporate domains rely on network shares to store user data. If you are on such a nework, disabling this program may result in a loss of data. It's best to leave it running, as it invokes no consequential performance hit. Tom|

|50% CPU utlization hit with 8MB of resource memory taken. This is a resource hog so not sure why posters here would so otherwise. This should be removed/disabled at all cost. Nads|
|The file is as Tom said. The exception is when you are not on a network shared with other people. Then its good to disable and prevent it from being misued by an internet hijacker or hacker Ryan|

|The exe is used to sync data with another computer, if working correctly it is not a reasource hog, and should not be taking up a huge amount of your cpu. If you have no need for syncing the data to another computer/location, the process is not needed, however, if your on a network, or a network that is being maintaned by someone, you should not mess with it whatsoever.
