User Profiles restored from backup do not appear on welcome screen
Due to needing to clean C drive and re-install Windows, I backed up just the user profiles to an external hard drive using the Windows 7 utility. I have restored the profiles using the same utility but the profile names and logo's do not appear on the welcome screen. I can see the files and folders in Explorer but I thought that the profiles would be automatically re-created. Have I missed something?
Incidentally, when I reloaded windows I created an Admin profile for setting everything up and did not use my actual profile name.

Sorry to bring this posting back up again, however I have now added a SSD as the primary drive, with Windows 7, Office 2010 and Mcafee loaded up and updated. My original HDD is now going to be the home for the user profiles etc, but currently is totally clean and therefore empty.
Having read the tutorials for moving user profiles to a new location, I am still unsure about a couple of points. Currently I have still the single Admin profile that I created when loading Win 7, but have not set up the 4 profiles, that I will need. Should I create these profiles, now, to match those on the back up, then move them to D drive prior to restoring the data to D, or restore the data first, then create and move the user profiles afterwards.
I also assume that I will not be selecting the 'restore to original location' option when I restore the data to D drive.
Thanks in advance
