    When this happens to me (or rather, the users' accounts) the quickest method I've found is to delete the profile from the C:\users folder, delete the user from Active Directory, create a new user with the same login details, log in as them, point the relevant folders to their redirected locations, and sync the offline files - hand the laptop back to user, and aside from the password reset they'll never even know what you did.

    I don't know exactly what your talking about but deleting AD users and creating them again can never be a good or quick thing to do. If you delete a user and simply create it again using the same name it is not the same account and will have a seperate ID. Security permissions will fail to work for that user etc etc. Be careful.

    I got this from an answers forum. Might be useful.

    The major changes to Offline Files for Windows 7 includes improved file access and an improved network file experience for users. Before doing this keep in ur mind :

    1. Fast first logon
    2. Usually Offline support with Background Sync
    3. Exclusion list
    4. Transparent Caching

    Transparent Caching is not enabled by default. IT administrators can use a Group Policy setting to enable Transparent Caching, improve the efficiency of the cache, and configure the amount of hard disk drive space that the cache uses.

    Also with regards to ensuring users can “take home” the laptop and taking it off the domain you could use folder redirection and offline files as a possible solution.
