Copying windows profiles
Can someone post the steps to copy an old local profile to a new profile.
I have users that were used to log to the domain and create a profile, now those workstations were disjoined and rejoined to the new domain.
So now when they logon to the new domain it will create a new profile for them, but they still need to see their old desktop, documents, favorites, applications, etc... just as if they were still in the old domain.
For test purposes I tried to copy the old profile to the new on, but when I go to the Advanced tab /user profile I see some profiles that show unknown and some if you highlight them, it won't give you the option to copy them...
in the c:\documents and settings I can see the (folders)profiles there.
but I am not sure on how to copy the old profile(folder) to the new one, is renaming the old folder with the new name and the new one with a different name will work?
