Cannot delete old off-line files shares on Vista users after migrating from SBS2003 to SBS2008 new server

Hi,
We've just migrated from Small Business Server 2003 to Small Business Server 2008 on a new server.

Various shares on the old server were made off-line for laptop users (running Vista).

Unfortunately I can't see how to remove these old off-line file shares/sync partnerships on the Vista clients.

The Vista clients are still showing various shares on the old server - SGS01 - which no longer even exists.

Please see attached images.

How do I fix this ?

Sorry Mike,

There is a sub note in the article:

"942974  (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942974/ ) On a Windows Vista or Windows 7-based client computer, you can still access offline files even though the file server is removed from the network "

Thanks - but I'd already found that.  And yes the format database deleted ALL off-line content.  It then ONLY re-established off-line content enforced by group policy - i.e. nothing off-line that had been set-up by the user.

So the question I have is this - for all users who on SBS2003 had redirected folders sync'd off-line do I need to run this registry fix ?

I would expect so yes, I've encounted the offline file bug on every vista machine I have moved to a differant domain.

These vista macines were migrated to a different domain - just migrating to SBS2008.
  Ony the server name changed.

That said, I think its the same issue and obviously the fix worked.
