    Posted: 30 Aug 2013 at 12:29pm

I am running the User Profile Wizard and it is on the Setting Profile ACL... part currently. It has been running this for a few hours now. I have checked the Resource Monitor (Win7) and it is showing disc activity. It is read/writing profile related files.

This user does have a fairly large profile.. would this be normal for it to take longer because the user has a lot of files in his (old) local profile?

"Finding Domain Controller for domain *****... Done.

The Hard disc is also getting bigger a few megabytes a minute.

Thank you,

Windows 7, connecting to SBS 2011.

If a user has a very large profile, say, several hundred Gb, then the profile may take some time to migrate. What is happening is that Windows is cascading permission changes through the file structure, so the more complicated the structure the longer it will take. The relative speed of the machine will also be a factor. The increase in hard drive usage is probably the result of the memory swap file growing.

It is hard to advise when you should give up. Generally it should not take hours. If you do decide to abandon the migration, run Chkdsk before trying to migrate the profile again. If the profile is no longer visible in the profile list, check the "Show Unassigned Profiles" box.
