Turning off offline files doesn't recover the disk space

    I had offline files enabled on my laptop and when I first enabled it, Vista
    took 20% of the disk for it (set aside I guess, I found the setting for
    adjusting that percentage).

    I didn't have any use of the sync anymore and disabled offline files. I
    deleted all the files too, but to my surprise Vista didn't give me my space
    back :(

    I can't find any settings for turning that thing off - permanently..
    I googled it and realized that all the synced files resided under
    %SYSTEMROOT%\CSC and tried to remove all the folders there (in safe mode) -
    not even that gave me my space back...

    Is the 20% a non refundable signup fee?^^

    I'm sure I missed something - can any one help me?
