I have been using the transwiz for a while to test new OSs.

This time, I went to move my profile from one of my laptops to a new one.

No matter what I have tried, I end up with the data going to a profile with "name.xxxxx" instead of just "name".

I have tried using this via a second account on the source and target computers and no change.

Any clues? This seems to be something that changed in the latest edition.

Nothing has changed in this regard.

Transwiz uses the standard Windows profile naming convention when restoring a profile: it will first try and create a folder called C:\Users\username. Only if that folder already exists will it append the domain (or local computer name) to the profile folder name: C:\Users\username.DOMAIN.
