I believe what's happened is that the desktop profiles were not backup prior to connecting them to the sbs server and then restored after the connection
To the OP...there's no "reverse" or "dis"connect. The old profiles are there C:\documents and settings
Find the desktop folder in the old profile.copy items to desktop folder on new profile
Continue with other folders as needed

Not sure what you are asking or wanting to do? Do you not wish to use the
SBS going forward? Or do you not wish to store user data on the SBS or ???
Truth be, you should tell us exactly what the perceived issue is, and ask
for a method to fix that. The only way to not be influenced by the SBS is
to not belong to the SBS domain, but for *all* other issues there is a way
to deal with what ever the perceived issue is, so please let us know *exactly*
what you would like to accomplish, preferably in a list format so answers
can be directed to each specific item.
Alternately, you could ask each question in a separate thread, as in:
How do I make the user created files, such as word, exel and so on available
when the user takes the notebook home?
Why does the desktop change when I pull the network cable on the computer?
Please post the resolution to your
issue so others may benefit
