User profile transfer to new domain profile from workgroup profile

I have a client that currently is working a workgroup. I've setup a new Server 2012 DC for them. Obviously, I'm planning to join the computers to the domain.

My question pertains to the user profiles. In the past, with Windows XP and other operating systems I've used ProfWiz when going workroup to domain, or the Windows Easy Transfer when going from computer to computer.

However, what is the fastest and most efficient way to move profile information from their standard workgroup profile to their new domain profile while hoping to possibly retain all settings, including appdata information? I was originally going to try and do the Windows Easy Transfer, but some of these profiles are approaching 100 gigs and that process of backing up and restoring takes way too long.

Yea, thats ProfWiz, which I've used in the past. Its my understanding that simply links to the two profiles together rather than actually moving the data. Is this still true, or can you force it to actually copy/move the data.
