Hi YaYangTeah,

Before you  perform a factory reset you can enable roming profiles :

If you have any questions let me know.
Double check if the roming profiles are all in sync in the file share location on the server.

regards,

Davy

You can also use the Built in windows 7 tool, Easy Transfer Wizard. It allows you to export the profiles to a file, and on the newly imaged PC you can restore it from that file using the same wizard. In Windows 7 this tool works really well. I can't understand why m$ dropped it in the later OS's.

so is mean that we can not pull user profile from the backup directly paste to the new system ? So that mean ,our existing backup is useless  ?Now we are performing daily backup for our office PCs using Acronis True Image ,i had try to do the full system restore or data restore only without any issue .

You can always also backup the files you create with the transfer wizard using Acronis. You can then mount the Acronis image and and navigate to that file, then use the transfer wizard to import it into your profile.
