I am using Idea 7.0.3 and I can't disable file synchronization. I have unchecked the "Synchronize files on frame activation" option in General settings page, but it still does not work. I see files being updated when I make changes to them outside the IDE.
The reason I want it so desperately is because I don't want IDEA to parse my build output files which happens through maven, as it consumes a lot of memory and cpu time.
Your help is appreciated,
