What is BCSSync.exe and How to disable it?

Have you ever noticed a process called BCSSync.exe running on your PC and wondered if it is a virus or a malware?  There is nothing to worry about this process. BCSSync.exe is part of SharePoint Server 2010 which is part of Microsoft Office 2010 suite. BCSSync.exe is responsible for providing automatic cache refresh and data sync with SharePoint. If you are not using SharePoint or you do not want cache data to be sync, you can disable this item at start up. It is not recommended to remove the file as it’s a component of Office 2010 and removing it might cause Microsoft Office 2010 to fail.


Below is the location of the file on the computer.

%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Office\Office14\BCSSync.exe

If you are not using SharePoint server, you can probably disable it from start up, but we wouldn’t recommend to delete the file as its a part of Office 2010.
