Hi,
I have problem backing up files from a profile called "jwhite" as the followings:

Computer A:
Operating system: Windows 7
There is a user called “jwhite”

Computer B:
Operating system: Windows 10

Goal: I want to back up all the files of “jwhite” to Computer B

Action: I take out the HD of Computer A, then plug it (through USB port) to computer B; I can see the volume of computer A as drive D:

Problem: When I open the Drive D, then, go to User folder, I did NOT see the “jwhite” profile.

I believe there must be something to be configured  at Computer B.

Somebody can help?

Thanks,
tjie

Profile folder name and user name do not always match. What other folders do you have under Users?
