Offline files and moving User Home Folders

I need to relocate user directories from one server to another.  My problem is that many users use offline file synchronization with these folders.  If the user directory is moved, offline synchronization will attempt to sync up the files at the old location, creating a lot of problems that I dont have time for.  I need to disable offline files for those directories until after the move.  There are other files/shares on that server that need to remain able to be synchronized.

My solution has to be via policy or script as running to each PC and disabling synchronization would be the last thing I would want to do, however that's the only way I've been able to find.

I could disable offline file synchronization with a gpo, however if I re-enable it it will come back with the same settings at the point of being disabled.

Thanks for any solutions or experience you've had in doing something similar.

You can select the folders on the server and in the properties disable the offline syncronisation.

You may have the problems your stating with the Client side caching when you re-enable it though.
