Transfer redirected MyDocuments from an old 2003 to new 2008 server.
Posted on 2010-01-08
I had an old 2003 server set up as a domain controller it held all of my users redirected my documents. The server has now gone down and does not exist. I only have the folder backed up that contained the users my documents called profiles.
I have recently set up a new server 2008 domain controller. I want to recreate all the old user accounts and the redirected my documents from the old 2003 server. I have set up folder redirection (my documents) and roaming profiles, yet have not set up any user accounts.
The data on the old server was in a folder called "profiles" in here I have all the folders (redirected my documents) for users. An example of a folder name in the parent folder profiles is "dduncan" (initial followed by surname). in that folder there is a folder called My documents containing all their work.
