Hello,

We have a user with a roaming profile in our active directory.  We would like to migrate all settings and files to a non-roaming profile to speed up login performance.

The client machine is running Windows 7 pro.

1. Shut down all computers of the user
2. Remove the Roaming Profile Link from the server
3. Start the PC and login as an admin
4. Go to User Profiles under System Maintenance
5. Delete the User Profile of the Roaming Profile User
6. Logon as the user - A new profile will be created and all settings require reconfiguration.

It's not necessary to do all that if your user is on one system.  Just change the profile on the local system.

You will just need to change the user profile from roaming to local, all the settings will be intact as it copies all the profile data from roaming location to local computer.

You might want to check for My Documents location once it is switched if it is on a shared location.
