I am trying to copy the complete user profile of an old XP pc to a new computer. I want to copy the entire profile as I have to get rid of the older PC quite soon, and would sort through the files at a later stage.
To do this, I setup a DeltaCopy server on my 2008 server, and placed DeltaCopy on the client.
I made sure DeltaCopy has write access to the folder on the server and everything.
I start the XP computer in safe mode with networking to log on as administrator, and then start the DeltaCopy client to copy the user profile. I also did this to ensure nothing in the profile would be in use.
Now, I have run into two problems.
The first is that the Administrator user does not seem to have access to a user profile. I had to grant it permission, but there were some folders that I didn't even have permission to edit.
I set the owner to be Administrator and set the permissions to apply to all child objects, yet it did not seem to help.
The second problem was on that the files that did copy, I also don't seem to have permission. Which is understandable as they contain information for the different accounts, but I can't seem to take ownership, as I don't even have permission to view the security information.
How can I resolve both of these issues and successfully transfer a complete user profile to another windows PC?
