I have a workstation that was on a domain that no longer exists. This workstation was (of course) never backed up and has software installed that we need but no longer have the installation sources for. I removed the machine and added it to my new domain, however when we go to start up Visual Studio(multiple versions) we get an error that the location of the settings file could not be located. The path in the message is \\sbs2003\users\USERNAME.
the new path is \\SBS2011\RedirectedFolders\USERNAME.  I need to figure out where in his userprofile this setting is so I can manually change it over without losing any other settings. I hesitate to run the  reset settings switch and wipe out other settings that may require extensive time to recreate. Anyone have any recomendations?

The issue turned out to be leftover settings in HKEY_CURRENT_USER. Downloaded the Registry toolkit from cnet and did a replace all (about 50 entries) with the correct redirected profile path on the workstation.
