Have a problem with a profile. A former employee set a profile up to only work on one computer, trying to undo that setup and change the profile to roaming so he can use any computer. Finally gave up and created a new profile and trying to get all his files transferred to the new roaming profile, can"t seem to get everything to work. Outlook is one of them. Any ideas??? Thanks, Ray.

What do you mean by trying to transfer files to a profile?

If you want to make a local profile into a roaming one, log onto local machine as administrator, go into system properties / user profiles, and use the 'copy to..' button to copy profile to the shared location. Then enter the path to the profile in the user's account.
If you want the profile to be used by other users then you will need to change the permissions first using the 'permitted to use' button.
