    Posted: 21 Mar 2018 at 9:29am

I have successufully used UPW 3.12 (free version) to migrate a few users in my domain (no change of domain, just the users name).

However, I noticed that the C:\users\(folder name) has not been changed and renamed according to the "new" user account name and was still named according to the original "migrated" user name.

According to this topic it's a "normal" behaviour for the free version of UPW 3.12.

So, my question is : if I purchase the Pro edition, what will be the procedure to rename the C:\users\(folder name) according to the "new" user name but ***WITHOUT*** migrating again the user since the latter was successfuly migrated at the first place by the free edition ?

Thanks for your advice.

User Profile Wizard Professional will rename the folder, but you will need to migrate the profile again. (It is not just a case of renaming the folder: paths in the registry will need to be updated too.) You just migrate the profile to the same user account.
