How to copy user data from your Windows XP profile to a new profile
Hi, I have a question on copying over.
I created a 2nd acct as was suggested in this thread. (Now on start up, it shows the 2 admin accts, which never showed before, and i choose one.)
I read the above link on how to copy over settings from admin1 to newly created admin2.
It says to go to another account other than one being copied from or to.
I noticed there is also a guest account on my system.
So do I need to go into guest account to copy over from admin1 profile account to admin2?
If so, a few questions;
Will I need a password to login to guest.
As far as I know, none of these accounts have passwords.
Do I have passwords on any of these? I didn't set any, and when recieved this computer brought it to techs to load os and copy over some files from old system. I assumed they would have just hit return on the password, as was never given one.
So, if I go to guest, which has no admin capabilites, will it let me do the copy as given above in the link?
and then if my admin1 has a password, how do I find out what it is, to get back into it?
Thanks for your help and wowie on all these awesome tips and tricks!
