We had folder redirection setup on our server.  We had to decommision the server and migrate to a new one.  After the change,  some of our users are getting a popup syaing offline files - working offline you are no longer connected.  The computer is still trying to connect to the old server.  I have stopped the machines from synching to the old server aswell as turned off the reminder.  This reminder comes up when they logon.  Is there anyway to stop the computer from trying to connect to the old server?

Disable offline files and then re-enable them.

We setup the folder redirection through GPO and it is only a couple of computers.  Don't want to take all the computer off folder redirection gpo.  Is there anything in the registry or another way to just fix these computers locally?

Basically, if you go to the mobsync app, and uncheck all of it under both locations, and reinitialize the CSC it might work. But....The older shares are stored in hkcu\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\NetCache\Shares, and that doesnt always get cleared on a reinitialization...
