migrate to a new user account


Recommended Posts

I have a laptop here with Vista Professional and I would like to rename an account.

But if I rename it using the Acount preferences in control panel then the name of the directory still remains.

I heard there is a way to create a new account and then migrate all of the settings, docs, files,... into the new one.

HOw could I accomplish this?

Erm do you mean Vista Business?

You may be able to use the User State Migration Tool. It is designed for mass migrations but I am sure you can do it for just one account.


I haven't used it before, just read about it in the Resource Kit, and I remember it being on an MCP test.
