An error occurred while using SBS 2008 Wizard to move data locations

I have a new server with SBS 2008 installed on it. It is not in production yet. OS on one disk 0, data on another, disk 1. Using the wizard, I changed the locations for the users' redirected folders and the location of the WSUS updates. I have not moved data to this new server yet just ran the Wizard.

I came in the next day and had a failure on Disk 1. Turns out it was a problem with the SAS cables. Got that fixed. Had to recreate the Raid configuration, re-initialize the physical disks, then in Windows Disk Managment I created a new volume and formatted it, with the same drive letter, F.

Now, when I use the Wizard to Move Users Redirected Documents data it gives me this error:

An error occurred while querying for the user's Redirected Folders data. This can occur if you moved the FolderRedirections folder to a different location, or if you changed the letter of the drive where the folder is located. This can also occur if files in the FolderRedirections folder are open.

This only affects the two move operations I made the day before the problem with the virtual disk. I just used the Wizard to move the Users Shared data to the F drive.

I'm thinking something in the registry? Any ideas?

Thanks, Mike
