Syncronize Subscription after it has expired

I have a problem, we have Replication on a system, We use Sql server 2005 for our publication and Sql server 2005 express for our subscriptions.   The problem we are having is that people are not always syncronizing before their subscription has expired and we need to get the data off their lap tops.  I have been researching this and found a couple options.

1.  I can pull a new subscription and add the database changes to it and then syncronize ( this is alot of work).

2. I can copy the tables, create new subscription, then replace the tables, however i don't really see this one working the way people think.   I am scared it would delete everthing since their old data base.

So if anyone has done this and would be able to tell me how they did it or if there is something built into RMO then that would be great.  Would like to do something in code so the help desk can just run it when ever this happens again.

Thanks
Jeremy

Can you just extend the expiration period?

You could but that still wouldn't help me get the data off our laptops now, also in order to extend this you would have to reiniailize the subscription for ever computer.  So it would be better if i could develop a solution for data recovery.

Yes, true. In that case, you may prefer to pull the data off into new tables and run a bunch of T-SQL to look for differences.

Unfortunately not really. If the subscription is expired, it won't have kept the intermediate logs required to sync.

Sorry,
