problem with synchronisation

I recently setup a new sbs domain.
I've set it up from scratch, but the users were connected to the old sbs domain before.
I've exported and imported their old profile via the 'file and settings transfer wizard' on windows xp.
When they log off the client pc's try to synchronise the 'my documents' folder to the server, which is normal.
The only problem is that the old server is also listed on the 'items to synchronise'.
I looked in all the sync options on the clients, but I can't stop the old server from being synched, nor delete it.

I think this came when I imported the old user profile?
How can I delete that old server in the sync window??

You need to run a utility on each workstation called cachemov.exe .  Look at the command line switches for it.  It will allow you to change the path for offline folder sync.  You can find it here: http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/Litmus/tools_ezine.htm#CacheMov 

I thought there was a newer version called something else but I cannot swear to it.

it just gives me the chance to move the offline folder to another local network drive ... .
When I look at the cmd line switches it gives me a tool with some options, but I don't see an option to delete the old server ....?
Is this possible with this tool?

That's a good question and I honestly cannot remember.  The other option is to delete the local cache: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/230738

And then, open the settings for offline files and folders and uncheck the items that refer to the old location.
