After connecting a Windows Vista computer to a Windows 2008 Server, how do I retrieve the original desktop the user had?

Our server crashed earlier this week and we hooked up the new yesterday. I have been having issues connecting the Vista computer to the server, but have finally managed to get it connected. Now the user has a whole new desktop. How do I get back to the original desktop the user had before the server crashed? Also, we are getting an "Unknown dictionary error" on our Dynamics program. Any help there also, would be great.

If you want to move everything from teh old profile to the new profile like printers, favorites and other settings try using the Easy Transfer Wizard.  It will search through the old user profile and allow you to restore it to the new profile.
