Copying Windows 7 profile contents to new profile

Hello,

We have a user, UserA who was accidentally removed from Active Directory.  I have recreated the user account on Active Directory.  When this user logs on, there is now an additional profile in Windows.  In addition to \UserA, there is also \UserA.domain.

I want all the users' stuff to be present when he logs in, rather than having to rebuild everything.  What would be the best way to accompish this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

ASIFBACCHUS - yes, I needed application settings, not just favorites, etc.  I used a little utility by Forensit to transfer the profile contents.


Thanks.

Hi,

Is this when the user logs into a machine?

So the new user's profile is now stored in Users\UserA.domain and his old data is still in Users\UserA, is that correct?  If so, you can simply copy all the data from UserA to UserA.domain, reset the permissions so there are no old permissions lingering and you should be fine.  Application Data is a little tricky, but this will work perfectly for documents, desktop, etc. if that's what you're after.  Unless I've misunderstood?
