Deleted Default User folder from Profile

By FaisalMasood ·
I've accidently deleted the Dafault User folder from the winnt\profile folder on a NT workstation 4.

Now when any one tries to log on to that client the get Environment .. popup screen for 30 seconds. After clicking ok one can logon, & access our w2k network. Now how can I remove that problem / replace the folder??

Open system properties from the control panel and choose 'User Profiles'. Select an appropriate profile from the list and select 'Copy to'. Browse for the 'c:\winnt\profiles\Default User' directory (if this dir isn't here then you might need to create it manually). Select 'Everyone' in the 'Permitted to Use' section and then click OK. This will make a copy of the selected profile in the default profile which all new users will inherit.

If this doesn't work try copying the directory from another NT4 workstation.

Hope this helps.

Just copying the folder from another PC & pasting it in the profiles folder on this PC worked.

(In case you set permission on folders then make sure permissions are right.)
