Problem copying local profile to domain profile.

I'm helping a laptop user log into our domain (MAIL - don't laugh I didn't
come up with the name) because he has been using a local profile and not
properly logging for a few months. I helped him log in and rebooted the
computer then logged in with our local admin account on the laptop and tried
to migrate his profile over from c:\documents and settings\username to
username.mail I'm copying about 2.5 gig of data from the local username to
username.mail profile.

I get an error on the username.mail profile that is stopping at a word
document. I log back in with the user's account and cannot find this
document. This error stops the copy process from local profile to domain
profile. I also looked in the registry and deleted one entry but the copy
process still stops after 2-3 attempts. I even deleted the username.mail
profile again and recreated it. Is there any way to fix this?

Reboot clean - log in with the user's local account and use the Files and
Settings Transfer Wizard to export the users profile (pretend this is the
old machine - store the profile on the machine.)

Reboot clean, log in as the users domain account (It would be best if it was
a clean/fresh/new account...) and then use the Files and Settings Transfer
wizard to import the profile which you saved above. (Pretend this is the
new machine.)
