Windows 2003 Folder Redirection Help

I have walked into a nightmare where folder redirection was set up for everyone.  I have a latop user that is set up with folder redirection and it is not synchronizing, it is a nightmare when he is working from home because of it wanting to syncrhronize, and this is a problem.  They want their stuff to be backed up to the network, like their My Documents folder.  What would be the best way to set my laptop users up with the My Documents getting backed up to the network once they connect to it?  This folder redirection is kicking my booty.

Ugh.  I have to share all the sub folders, too?  That seems excessive.  I guess I will have to go third pary on this one.  SmartSync Pro seems like a good third pary solution.

Configure one of your servers as a Remote Access / VPN Server, allow the Laptop user Dial-In access and have them check the "Logon via Dialup" checkbox so they VPN  in at logon. Now as long as they have an internet connection they will connect as if they were in the office... Group policies and Folder Redirection will work.
I have our mobile users in a separate OU and do not use folder redirection or roaming profiles. I do use offline folders set to NOT sync automatically and have directed our mobile users to sync their offline folders only when connected to the LAN in the office. This has worked very well for us.

The thing I've noticed about this is that it syncs only the files and not subdirectories.
Are the folders shared? They need to be shared folders in order for them to sync.
