I mistakenly removed myself from a domain and put myself in a workgroup. Now, my user profile reads "Account Unknown". I am no longer able to rejoin the domain. I do have admin account and rights.

Would I be able to migrate the old user profile using this Profile Wizard?
 
Thanks in advance,

Hi Juan,

Yes you can migrate the old profile using User Profile Wizard. But why can't you rejoin the domain?

The company I was working for folded, there is no more domain (or IT dept for that matter) to be found. So, my mistake in thnking I was 'cleaning up' my thinkpad. Dumb, dumb mistake, but it seems irreversable, now that the profile I was using says "account unknown".

Suggestions?

well, it worked like a charm. even though the user account was unknown, the wizard saw it and migrated the settings to another account not on the domain.  so I can log on and see and use all my old settings.
