Hi Experts,
I have a computer in a conference room that has been logged into by 20 different team members.  I would like to replace that computer with a newer computer.
Both computers have Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.
I would like to run the transfer wizard (while logged in as me) and have it capture each profile when it grabs the settings.
Am I able to transfer settings for user profiles that are all password protected?  Or, said differently, will windows allow me to get all of the profile settings so that the can be automatically created on the new computer?
Please advise
thanks

Should be able to grab all profiles, just make sure your account is an admin.

Also it will probably take a while to grab all the profiles

Yes, from Windows 7 onwards Easy Transfer allows you to select multiple profiles to export.
