Windows 7 Copy User Profile is greyed out
Posted on 2010-08-15
I am installing a Windows 2008 R2 server in place of a Windows SBS 2003 today. There are only 3 workstations. I want to copy the user profile to a new profile so I can copy this new profile to the NEW user when I have replaced the SBS with WIn 2008 non SBS.
This went well on the one XP machine we have. However on the Win 7 machine I have:
Logged in as Domain Admin and created a new local user, JohnCopy.
I have logeed out as Admin and logged in as JohnCopy.
I have logged out as JohnCopy and logged in as Domain Admin.
Start>Computer (right click)>Properties>User Profiles
When I highlight the user John with the intent of copying the profile to JohnCopy, the Copy To button is greyed out.
What do I need to do to copy this profile?
