How to copy one Windows Server 2008R2 user profile settings to another user on a network

Hello - I'm unclear on how to copy one Windows Server 2008R2 user profile settings to another user on a network.  We have a glitch that is happening in one users account, and another user that is working.  I want to apply the working user's profile settings on top of the problematic user, to see if it fixes the problem.  Can this be done?

Thanks

Agree David!

I do the same method on the Server:

See under To copy files to the new user profile:

USMT will work in this scenario but there will be artefacts of the original user profile left in it... suggest that you remove/delete the profile and have the o/s build a new one.

thanks guys.  I should have mentioned that I did try rebuilding it.  I deleted the problematic users profile, and let the OS rebuild.  It seems to exist for this one user somehow, so now I wanted to see what it does when I take a GOOD user and apply the profile settings to the user.

strangely, rebuilding the profile a 2nd time works now.  chalk this one up to a Windows glitch all around!  Thanks guys
