I started the migration from Small business server 2003 to 2008 server. I never completed the migration because I needed to keep the 2003 SBS running to host a software package that could not be moved to the new server.  

When I did the steps for the migration I forgot to disable folder redirection.  This morning the 2003 SBS crashed so I seized the 5 FMSO roles but I need to know how to disable folder redirection from the 2008 server?

In group policy do you have the checkbox to restore the users files back when folder redirection is disabled? folder redirection options if not then it is a two step process.. change the checkbox.. (ONLY).. gpupdate /target:user /force wait until all machines have the new group policy and then it is as simple as removing the groups that are affected by folder redirection.  
Then on the client machine  gpupdate /target:user /force
