    following on from my other thread "Catastrophe" I have a few more questions.

    I have read many threads on re-creating an account which, in nearly all cases, detailed the following;

    1. Create a new account in the normal manner.
    2. Login with the new account to create the files.
    3. Copy folders / files / emails etc from the old account into the new account. This will allow the new account to access all of the information you need.

    My questions are this:

    1. Do I have to open the folders so that I can see the hidden / system folders?
    2. Do I copy all the system / folders including any .ini files?

    I understand I should not copy the ntuser, ntuser.log, any other ntuser files, from old account to new account.

    Alternatively, can I copy the new ntuser files to the old account?


    Very harrassed person :frown:
