I have been tasked with figuring out how to back up domain user profiles since the powers that be do not wish to use roaming profiles and redirected folders. I have experimented with several utilities which will back up the c:\users\domainuser profile just fine ( well, thats a bit of a fib, my test laptop is workgroup only and i am backing up my profile to a usb drive as a test ) Easy Transfer has been the only thing which has restored the profile perfectly, including all the customizations...IE desktop icons, wallpaper etc. all other attempts have restored the c:\users\username folder but logging in only gives the default profile. In addition, it appends the computer name to the folder. IE c:\users\user gets exported. the local user account is on the pc. The profile is deleted by using another admin account on the profiles tab. I verify that the users folder is gone. When I restore, I get the user folder back, plus one saying user.computername. I am guessing that is why I get the default profile.
So, can this be scripted to run as a scheduled task?
Thanks in advance
