Problem with Offline Files

I am having problems with Offline Files. I used a GPO to Enable Offline Files and that appears to have worked. If says Offline Files are Enabled and "Disable Offline Files" is grayed out. I have redirected folders in place and they have been in place for years. The problem is that the Redirected Folders are "disconnected" and as a result they do not sync. It says they are always available offline but when this person takes his laptop home he does not have access to his documents.

   I just migrated them to a 2012 Essentials server from a 2003 Standard. Offline files worked on the 2003 Standard. It is a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit laptop. As mentioned they won't sync because they are "disconnected". Ideas?

They are probably still trying to sync with the 2K3 server. Even if the name is the same the SID will be different.

So how can you tell it that is the case and correct it? If you look at the offline files they appear to be correct.....
