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.

a) if the machine has changed domains then cached credentials for the old ones are gone

Chances are no
