I have a Windows 2000 server machine that needs to be replaced because of faulty disks. I'm going to get another similar machine to replace it. Here is where my problem starts. The users who use this machine are only connected to it as local users, there is no domain, all in a workgroup only. So there's no active directory, no global or anything.
So now my challenge is to migrate the local users information and their share folders information to a new machine. There are a total of 300 over users with different permissions to share folders. They can't be recreating everything one at a time.
I heard of backing up the system state. Will it work?
I'm sure there's more to do other than just the system state?
