Roaming Profiles - Work from Home

I have been using Roaming Profiles for many years and they work great for me. The only issue I'm having is with users that occasionally work from home.
Happened many times that they took their laptop home, worked on something, brought the laptop back, turned it on to see their old profile loaded and their weekend work disappear.
Is there good solution? Is there something I set up incorrectly?

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You need to use folder redirection so the users profile and stored data are separated.
Microsoft TechNet has a good in-depth article on doing so.

Roaming profiles are horrible - that's one of the major problems.

DON'T USE THEM.  Use Folder Redirection instead combined with offline files cache.  In that way, problems like this can't happen.
