windows 2K profiles

Token

Hi,

Recently I lost a profile on the machine however the users directory still
existed,
when I recreated the profile it always recreates the users directory for
example

C:\Documents and Settings\myProfile (was the old profile directory)
C:\Documents and Settings\myProfile.Hostname (it create a new directory when
I logon)


My question is how can I restore or make the user profile user the old
directory?

Thanks


T.

Create a new user account that has the same rights and group memberships or associations as the account that has the questionable profile.
Copy the user settings in the questionable profile to the profile of the newly created user account:
Click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click System.
On the User Profiles tab, click the questionable profile, and then click Copy To.
In the Copy To dialog box, click Browse under Copy profile to.
Locate the Documents and Settings\user profile folder, where user profile is the name of the newly created user profile, and then click OK.
If necessary, click Change under Permitted to use, set the appropriate permission, and then click OK.

Hi Token,

Not sure what you mean by writing "lost a profile", but perhaps these Microsoft
Knowledge Base Articles will help:
