Copy User Profile

Copying user profiles to new Windows install--July 2009

  • Have user log in if they can, to create new profile (e.g. olueth.FEFC)
  • If new profile location is created, a registry entry will be created at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList

  • Copy profile from old to new using XCOPY old new /O/X/E/H/K/C

  • Update registry location if needed (but probably don't do this...)
