copying files and settings from domain logon to local/workgroup logon

By napalm2 ·
Recently, server RAID went down...no longer have use for server. Although the server is unavailable, I still access all of my apps and data, locally, through the domain logon. I need help on how to correctly transfer all of my apps/data/settings so that I can access them by logging on to a local account. BTW If it makes a difference, have a large external HD.

your using cached credentials to log on

by CG IT In reply to copying files and setting ...

if you no longer have a domain controller to authenticate you logon credentials. So......
if you don't have domain administrative privileges or power user privileges, you might not have the necessary rights to create a new local machine user account and then copy the cached domain account to the local machine account.

you can try to use the MS KB article # 8111 to accomplish this.
