I have a Windows Server 2003 network.  My laptop was set for one of my drive mappings to use offline files.  The server crashed and I reloaded it from scratch.  All of the ip and computer name information are the same.  However the issue that I'm having is that now my laptop wants to sync the old server.  What I need to know how to do is release that old "make these files available offline"  and I can start from scratch.  Thanks in advance.

turn off offline files, via group policy and reboot your machine

At present we do not have any policies implemented.  Server is only being used for authentication to network and file sharing.

If I knew what I was doing to could try but I don't know anything about GP's at present.  My last experience with them was in a NT 4.0 environment.  All I can remember is locking myself out of everything.  I would be will to try it though if I knew how to.

Still trying to learn GPO.  Meanwhile I'm awarding points for efforts.  Thanks and I'll repost once I've tried the above solutions more in depth.
