Have two local domain user profiles one old one new.  Logged in as local administrator and the "copy to" button is greyed out?  Ideas?  Thanks

This feature was disabled in Windows 7 as Microsoft claims the profiles are incompatible. You can copy the contents of Favorites, My Pictures, My Documents, etc ... manually though.

Here's a workaround option you may want to consider : http://joeelway.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!2095EAC3772C41DB!2708.entry
