windows server 2000 sbs
upgraded to windows server 2003 sbs
clean install
user was on old domain/profile using synched offline files pre upgrade but did not sycn with old server/domain
files are no longer available offline after the upgrade (new server name new domain.).
can i recover these files if they lost their local copy?
would system restore recover the offline files that were local to his PC?
can i restore to his old domain (even though the old domain is no longer around), log in using cached credentials, and see if i can then see the offline files?
These are 2 files but 2 big and very important files with no backups for the most recent version that he needs.
