Cannot copy user profile
Posted on 2004-09-07
I have a w2k pro desktop that I removed from a domain that no longer exists and joined to a home workgroup. Now the profile that was associated with the user DOMAIN\USER is unavailable for copying to the new user LOCAL MACHINE\USER. The "Copy To..." button is grayed out.
In the User Profiles dialog box the Profile Name came up as Account Unknown (most likely because it was associated with an account from the old domain). I renamed the new profile folder and renamed the exisitng profile folder to match the new one hoping that the new account would then use that folder...but it did not. Now in the User Profile dialog the profile doesn't even show up but the folder still exists. I need to get that profile associated with a new account.
