Changing computer SID in Windows 7
Posted on 2011-10-12
I am discovering well after the fact that I have two computers with identical SIDs. In order for Carbonite to work properly (on the same account), the SIDs must be different.
Microsoft recommends running SysPrep and selecting Generalize (with, I assume, "enter system out of box experience").
My question is, does this reset anything other than the SID, for example, are the user accounts, all their files and installed programs there after I run SysPrep?
