Hi,

I am having an issue with Roaming Profiles coming from Windows 10 to Windows 7.

A client wanted an existing user put on to Roaming profile to move around different machines.

The current PC is on Windows 10 Pro, and the next PC they tried to login to was on Windows 7.

No error messages to say about temp profiles, and I have been through the usual troubleshooting steps. I got to renaming the folder it had created and noticed there was a USERNAME.V2 and also USERNAME.V6 folder?

Are there compatibility issues between W7/W10 on roaming profiles that anyone knows of?

Thanks.
