Profile question...

One of the small networks I manage had a Win2k DC that crashed.
We replaced it with a 2008 SBS & since most of the clients were XP, I
was able to join computers to the new domain & copy the profiles from
the old location to the new location.
That was until I got to the Vista laptop.
On this computer, the profile shows as 'Unknown' & the 'copy to'
option is grayed out.
I am currently copying the contents of the C:\Users\username folder to
the C:\Users\user.newdomain folder.
Will this be all I need?
Is there an easier way?
Also, under system properties>user profiles that Unknown profile shows
to be 42.9 GB, but the folder I am copying is only 19.7 GB.
Why such a huge difference?

Did you try and ask in the SBS newsgroup about this issue with joining a XP laptop
to a sbs environment?

The XP laptops & desktops weren't a problem.

That has nothing to do with your question. If that's going to be your
attitude, reload XP and slither out of here.

If you read my original post, my problem was with a vista laptop.
All my XP clients made the transition without a problem.
This is a vista NG, right?

That's having an attitude problem! Did you post your question to the SBS
ng, as was suggested?

There was no issue with any XP clients joining the sbs environment.
If you read & comprehend english, you might see that the issue was
with a VISTA laptop.
And no, I did not post this to the sbs newsgroup, as it appeared to be
an issue on the VISTA LAPTOP.

Then I guess you'll never get an answer. Just so you know, it works fine on
my Vista setup. Good luck with yours.
