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.
