Document Redirection

At one point my SBS-2003 had My documents redirection setup (obviously not through Server Manager wizard, previous IT guy did not like SBS wizards at all) Then boss told him to do roaming profiles. while trying to get that working he deleted redirection GPO and disabled the policy. This is the history of the problem.
I noticed that client machines still synch "my documents"  folder to server. I tried finding some reg value that might have got stuck on client machine but to no avail.
I reformatted one client machine recently and that, I believe, does not synch up to server any more. I will have to confirm though. Any idea what reg key may it be.

Is turning off Offline Folders an option on these PCs?  That will definitely stop any syncronisation happening and I think Offline Folders just cause trouble on LAN PCs without really serving a purpose.

You could use the "Resultant Set of Policies" MMC snap-in to check if the Group Policy setting is still in force on one of the PCs just in case he has it set somewhere else in another GPO.
