    We have gone to SBS2008 and are now running in a domain (was peer to peer).

    Naturally to do this I logged in as normal joined a DOMAIN, rebooted, and logged in with the proper domain user account and password.

    Is there any way to copy the settings from that local account to the new DOMAIN log in user account?

    I normally use a little program called outback plus which backups all this stuff and the ie settings/cache/etc - same for the firefox stuff and then I can restore that wherever I want -- however that only seems to be working on a few of the comps. 3 of them in fact the files will not restore -- no idea why and no google search has uncovered the answer so I am looking for an alternative.

    I am stuck big time and need to finish this asap as everyone comes back to work tomorrow at 8:30am

    Thanks in advance if you can help.

    what OS?
    roaming profiles or standard local-only profiles?

    either way if XP,
    System Properties -> Advanced -> User Profiles Settings -> select local account, "Copy To" select new domain account profile folder as destination.

    or use something like User Profile Wizard by ForensIT.
    I've used it several times before and it worked flawlessly for me.
