Just a thought, are the offline folders assigned administratively via Group Policy? If so, have you updated the paths in the GPO?

No, their Home Folders as set via Active Directory and then GPs are set to map their My Documents to %HOMESHARE%%HOMEPATH%
The mapping of their home drives and my documents is working fine, just offline files is still trying to synchronize with the old server.

What I meant was, how were the folders/files that are trying to synchronise assigned as offline files/folders? Did the users of the laptops set them themselves (Right Click->Make Available Offline) or was it set via group policy (Administrative Templates->Network->Offline Files->Administratively Assigned Offline Files)? If set via Group Policy, this may be overwriting any changes made by csccmd.exe.
Of course, I could be completely wrong!

The users set it themselves

I'm having to goto every single laptop and manually move any work they did from their offline files to their new Home Folder, disable Offline Files and then create a new Sync... and even then, it still tries to sync to their old home drive...
No wonder so many people stay away from Synchronization/Offline Files

Hooray - Problem solved!
None of the users had read access into the share root
i.e. \\StorageServer\Staff Folders\
only to their own folders within that
i.e. \\StorageServer\Staff Folders\Username
(Which creates another problem - but that's something for a different thread)
So i've given them all read access and then the csccmd command works!
Next question tho, even tho the synchronization has now successfully moved all the files to the new share, it still picks up the old server has being offline even tho it doesn't have any files to synchronize (As per picture). Is there anyway I can remove this link?

XPs offline files system is quite primative in comparison to Vista's and so there is no direct way that I know of to get rid of this for an individual server other than resetting the whole offline files cache on each laptop. This will remove the old links and all files and then resync again from the start:

Just found this thread and allthough you've probably fixed it by reinitializing the cache I'm sure there is also a delete command available in the csccmd tool.
There was a v1 and a 1.1 I think it was that was only available from Microsoft support for some reason.
The later version had some extra commands available.
