user profile

To experts,

I came across this issue with Window 7 user profile.
1. I delete the domain user from domain
2. I recreate the domain user with the same info
3. When I tried to log back into Window 7, the profile isn't the same person. Window 7 detects the user as a new user.

At this stage, I realized something called guid wasn't pointing to the same user as before.

My question are:
1. What is the best way to restore user profile under this situation?
2. Will I be able to relink the guid with the new guid from the new user that I created?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.



The best way to restore user profile is to login with admin or account with rights on the machine go to computer properties -> advance settings -> under user profile you can copy user profile to the newly created user profile.


You can not relink the guid with the new guid in Active Directory.
