This article describes how to copy user data from your
Windows XP profile to a new profile.
When you copy user data into a
new profile, the new profile becomes a near duplicate of the old profile, and
contains the same preferences, appearance, and documents as the old profile. If
your old profile is corrupted in some way, you can move the files and settings
from the corrupt profile to a new profile.Note
The method that is described in this article may not transfer the Outlook
Express e-mail messages and address user data that are associated with the user profile where you are
transferring data from. When you delete the old profile, you may delete that
data if it you do not first transfer it by using other methods.
