We are using windows server 2008, named “server”   we used to be on an older box and it was called “server09. We have approx 25 users and 15 of the have their my documents folder redirected to the server on the  “server09” box.    That box has died and no longer exists.   All of these users are still trying to access it.   I have had to tell all these users workstations  to work offline so that they can access their “my documents files “

 

At one point there was a group policy setup for this but it is now completely gone.   

 

I don’t know where to go in and remove these instructions.  

 

I know the my documents files are on the local computer  but I want to restore the local computers to save all the my documents in the  original location on the local computer and not try to do the synchronization to the old  server since its not there anymore

 

I am guessing there are some settings in the register

Right click My Documents Folder-> Properties, under Target tab click Restore Default.

That should do it.
