You are working online, but changes you made offline have not been synchronized

I am doing folder redirection of My Documents to my NAS using group policy on a Windows 2003 Server. My NAS failed. I edited the group policy to direct to another Server, now some of the XP Pro Desktops are giving and Offline files Status Message box “You are working online on NAS, but changes you made offline have not been synchronized” I have deleted the offline files on the desktop, but continue to get this message. Is there anything I can do with group policy to stop this? If not what do I need to do on the Desktop?
I am planning to replace the NAS and will need to change the location to the New NAS, what do I need to do differently to prevent this next time?
Thanks for your help

Workstation tries to synch offline files with old server which is offline.

Looks like the scenario you are facing... If all of the workstations are in synch, you wouldn't need to use the 'csccmd.exe /extract' command. If you are unsure, then you run this from a machine startup script.

Might be able to get away with just deleting the Shares/AssignedOfflineFolders reg keys... But I doubt it..... Normally this requires a reinitialization of the CSC.
