Windows 7: Moving user accounts with Windows 7 installed using Audit mode

Moving user accounts with Windows 7 installed using Audit mode

I have been trying Kari's instructions on moving user accounts to another drive on an installed Windows 7 professional. But unable to get into audit mode. When I type in the command c:\windows\system32\sysprep\sysprep.exe/audit/reboot. I get the reply system cannot find the path specified.

Any ideas
