Subscription expired on SQL Server

our subscription expiration was set to 14 days on our server and all our laptops can no longer replicate with our server. I have changed the subscription expiration to never but still cannot replicate the laptop databases. Does anyone know how to get this replication happening again without losing the data on the laptops?

I restarted the server that the Database is on, this made no difference. I had a look at the responses on the forum mentioned above and found nothing helpful there either. thanks for the replys. I am still searching for answer, any further comments are most welcome.

Just a thought....I made a backup of the data base on my client laptop, then deleted the subscription on the laptop and server, then recreated the subscription and did a synchronisation. I then have the database back on the laptop minus any updated data that was on the laptop. But, my synchronisation now works without errors.
If I now did a restore on the laptop and then did a synchronisation, would this cause any problems with the data on either the laptop or server???
