copying user profiles - what gets copied exactly?

matt_bilyeu
Hello all! At my company, we are having to manually migrate over a 1,500 PC's from one domain to another due to a one-way trust. Once the user's PC is on the new domain they are also going to get a new username and password, which they are already using for Outlook web access. I guess my question is, what is the best and quickest way to copy over their local user profiles? Its a mixed Win2k and Win XP environment with no roaming profiles.

I found the "Copy To" user profile function in System Properties but I'm not sure what exactly it copies over. Does it just copy over the users folders such as My Documents, Favorites, Desktop, etc? Or, does it also copy over settings like drive mappings and printer mappings and other settings?

Please help! :) We have a lot of PC's to migrate and manually copying over profiles and then re-creating drive mappings and printers and other settings is going to waste a lot of time. Thank you.
