Login as the administrator and go to:

c:\documents and settings\(username)\

Then you can move the files it is requesting off of the local profile.

If you need to get access to the administrator account, press F8 at startup and choose safe mode.
You should be able to access the account unless you have a password set that you don't know.

Hope this helps. :)

Rename the profile that is giving you this error.
Then recreate it fresh.
Try copying the data and see what happens in the new profile.

Ok, first of all, if this is a Domain PC, we really shouldnt be helping to bypass a retriction set in place by a GPO....

Which is User Config\Admin Templates\System\User Profiles\Limit profile size.

Do me a favor.....

Go into the registry, and tell me the "Personal" value under the following registry key....

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders

Also, start>run>rsop.msc

Navigate to User Config\Admin Templates\System\User Profiles\Limit profile size, and please take a screenshot of it, and attach it here please....
