SBS 2003 group policies

Hi all;

I'm setting up a new 2008R2 server (standard) to replace an SBS2003 server.  SBS has a bunch of standard policies it sets up, they don't look like they've been altered.  Any suggestions on which I can delete out of hand.

This is a small company (6 seats), they don't use exchange, sharepoint,  just filesharing basically.  I will be keeping folder redirection, but I will set it up under 2008R2 as it provides a few more options.  I have my own set of GPs I like to setup but I don't want to bugger anything up in SBS while I setup the transfer.

Is you're plan to do away with the SBS Server or keep it?
If you're  keeping it, you would be better off just disabling the GPO's rather than deleting

For 6 seats a much cheaper alternative would have been moving to Windows Server 2012 Essentials.  Supports up to 25 users, provides full back up of all workstations and still gives users access to their desktops remotely.  No exchange included

We'll be doing away with the SBS2003 server.  Yeah, I suppose disabling the GPO's would be smarter. 2012 Essential would probably have been a good choice, but the new server was already on order before I came on the scene.

My recommendation doesn't change, I'd just disable.   Migrations don't always go as planned and disabling allows you to go back if you need to
