Manually setting offline files vs. .kix vs. GPO

I'm running into an issue where we had an old NAS device on the network, and it had offline files enabled (manually) on a few users laptops.  Now that I have taken that NAS offline, and introduced a new NAS, when users log off, it's trying to sync to the old NAS device.  I found that removing this drive while disconnected seems to resolve the issue, then setting up the offline files option manually again is working.  This is a real pain in the you know what.

.kix or GPO the best for this?  Best for moving forward in technology? (I've read that .kix is the old way of doing things and the GPO is great as it can be migrated to new server O/S's without having to play around; I've also read that it's much more versatile).

kix is in no comparison with GPO as they are completely different worlds.

I only used kix in the past to handle mappings and such, which I have replaced with VBS scripts, but GPO would be the best way to manage your enviroment with granual detail.
