Folder redirection error

I just migrated from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008. One computer keeps trying to sync My Documents to the old server - 192.168.0.20. I get the error message
Event Type:       Error
Event Source:    Folder Redirection
Event Category: None
Event ID:           106
Date:                7/13/2009
Time:                10:31:38 AM
User:                LAWOFFICE\user1
Computer:         User1
Description:
Failed to perform redirection of folder My Documents. The full source path was <\\192.168.0.20\users\user1>. The full destination path was <>. At least one of the shares on which these paths lie is currently offline.

There is nothing in Group policies redirecting to that.

I deleted offline files and that folder no longer shows up

I can't find that in the registery.

The only problem this is causing is a very slow bootup.

The easiest way to get this working again (that i know of...) is to set another PC up on the network with the \users\user1 share on it (with permission for the relevant user) and give it the IP 192.168.0.20 - log onto the problem PC again, and it should copy the profile from the PC to the correct location for profiles under the current infrastructure - once it's done this it will delete the config pointing it to the old server.

I deleted the profile and recreated it. I was hoping to avoid the hassel

Sorry my answer didn't get to you before you deleted your profiles, because it was a lot of necessary work for you.  Save the answer though.  If you ever run across the problem again this will come in handy.  It is very quick to implement.
