I want to turn on a filter for SDEs in records collection using a boolean field on the object. And then remove all records already in the SDE who do not meet criteria.

Can I simply refresh the SDE to remove these records? Or do I need to unsync the object and then re-sync it within Data stream?

    its not possible to remove records from SDE you can filter on SDE based on boolean field then you can refresh the filter DE – pkharries May 22 '19 at 5:22

If you apply a new filter to the sync it will remove contacts from the Sync DE but it will not remove contacts from your account. You will then need to leverage the 'Contact Delete' process to remove them from the account

I would recommend using a query activity to identify the contacts you plan on filtering out before you change you sync settings. Then use this DE in the delete process. This help article 'Permanently remove Contacts or Subscribers and associated data from Contact Builder' will also assist.
