Replacing corrupt profiles in Windows 7

We are in the process of adding windows 7 laptops to your network. We are using roaming profiles and Redirect for the My Document.  We had a profile that became corrupt last week. I delete it from the local pc, restored the profile from the backup to the DC, and tryed to login with the profile. It logs me in with a temp profile because there is a problem with the profile. After a little research, it seem to know the profile is missing. It assigns it an sid and holds regitry key for it....

So, how are you suppose to restore a corrupt profile on a Windows 7 pc?

It seems as though the backup copy of the profile is also corrupt.

I would create a new profile and then copy the data from the old profile to the new one and see if that fixes it.

Have you got folder redirection enabled also?

If so you might just rebuild the profile properly by removing the copy (just rename the folder in case you need some files later such as the NK2 file).

I found basically the same info but I haven't been able it to work yet. Have you try this and been able to restore a user's profile. It was friday and very busy day.  But it seemed pretty straight forward. I'll play around with it in a little while and see how it goes, but I would like to know if any of you have had success with this. THanks!

First lesson learned, don't delete the profile off of a windows 7 pc. I weht in and followed the directions on the link, delete the registry keys. It still wouldn't load the profile. I'm gonna do so more testing, I'll report back and award point then. Anybody played with this in windows 7 with roaming profiles?
