Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I have pulled my computer off of a domain and made it standalone. However, I want all my old stuff from my domain user profile migrated to my local user profile. Is there an easy way to do this or do I copy and paste from one to the other?
The primary tool for this purpose would be the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. You will find detailed instructions for this tool at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293118/en-us. As an FYI only, if you encounter an issue due to SP3, please consult this document: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950728/en-us.
If you should encounter unanticipated issues, please feel free to post back for additional assistance. You will find that passwords you may have saved within programs are not transferred with this tool, which is not an error, it is an intentional security measure.
