Nice job!!

The only way I know of is to map a share to the new computer and then go to System in Control Panel > User Profiles > Highlight profile and Copy To new profile place.

Maybe an XCOPY command will do the same thing.

You want to be careful in copying between computers if you use NTFS permissions. They won't be copied across.

True, they will inherit the parent folder's permissions so log on to the machine first with the user you are copying to avoid that problem.

For 600 users! Eek!

There are commercial tools that will do this with no headache. It might be worth buying one:

Thanks Stoner !

I now Compaq has utility Altaris or something like that. But it's to complicate. I'm looking for "easy to use" application

Use the backup
Backup the folders from your 1st profile server into a file and restore to an alternate location

Windows backup preserves permissions :)
