Moving user data to a new profile in Windows 7 and XP

Hello experts,

In a Windows workgroup member PC, how to move all user data including desktop, my documetns, favorites, outlook pst files, outlook email account settings... to the new user profile after joining a domain? Is there any easy way to do so instead of copying and moving and assigning privileges for those one by one?

With the Windows XP PC you can use the MoveUser.exe application to migrate each profile into the server. With Windows Vista and 7 MoveUser.exe was replaced by the Win32_UserProfile WMI functionality

 Do one think that just profile rename as a domain alias.

Just renaming your current user's folders is not adviced. There are several problems involved with the registry and also local access. That's why these tools exists.
