I have a Vista machine on a Windows domain and the user signs into the Vista machine as domain\user.
On the domain controller the user was deleted my mistake. I have re-created the user account on the domain and the user can sign-in but their user-setting are lost.
On the Vista machine I noticed a profile named Unknown Account and when I browse the user directory on the Vista machine I see a directory simply named user. I can tell this holds the old user.domain settings. I assume when the user account was deleted from the domain the profile on the Vista machine changed from user.domain to Unknown Account and the directory changed from user.domain to user.
What's the best way to get this Unknown Account renamed back to user.domain? Or what's the best method to get the data in Unknown Account into the current user.domain account?
