  • Windows XP Pro profile corrupt - status backup

    Hello all,

    Continuing from my previous thread, i have an XP Pro SP3 client with a corrupt profile. On right clicking My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Profiles, the profile has status "Backup"

    What is the best way to restore this? I know there are lots of guides online (which i have read), but they dont seem to go into much detail. They all seem to say, create a new profile and copy the data over. But, do i copy over ALL of the data in the profile (will that copy over the corruption?) and since i obviously want to keep the same username, wont there be a problem there?

    Any help would be appreciated.
