Can not save items to profile

I copied all my files from the old computer to the new computer but when i rebooted everything was gone. I am using windows 7 on the new computer and it is part of a network with windows 2003 server. I am using AD but not saving the profiles to the server. Is there a reson it does not save to the profile and how can i get arount this.
Thank you

install windows easy transfer on old computer.  choose your profile and let the software copy it to a shared network drive or usb stick.  Run the output file on the windows 7 computer and all your profile settings will appear on the windows 7 computer.  note user name has to be the same.

If old computer is XP  as bbtmhmr pointed out you need to use the transfer tool

Did this and all looked good. files all showed up after 2 hours of transfer but when i restarted every thing was gone. Back to the 4 or 5 items that always show up. Can not find the files or folders.
Any thing else to help with this.
Thank you.

You then must have something on the system that preserves its current state i.e. a snapashot mechanism. Mandatory profiles. Check your event logs.
Presumably you are copying the data into c:\users\<username>.V2

no it works fine with all the xp computers but these are 3 new windows 7 computers. When i reboot the windows 7 computers it gives me an error message saing that the profiles will not be saved and all the data will be lost. This is a temporary profile contact you administrator.
Has anyone had the same problem with windows 7.
Thank you
