re-create user folder structure

Posted: 12-02-2008, 07:01 AM

hello everyone

So I am taking a class on vista as part of my major requirements (im
network admin major). As such, I have been doing a LOT of tinkering an
messing around with Vista, looking at things and playing with differen
settings. Anyways, to make a complicated story short, I need t
re-create the admin, default and so on profiles as I somehow deleted th
default profile and had to make the admin profile the new "defaul
profile". So, is there any way to extact them from the vista DVD or do
have to start over

Hello Cuestakid,

You can see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated
before this problem can restore it for you.

If not, then you may be able to just create a new administrator account
for your default instead of the built-in administrator one.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

well i actually was able to extract the contents of the vista dvd via
using 7zip-and i was able to get the folder structure but I could not
find a way to copy it correctly so I actually ended up starting fresh as
I could no longer create any new users so I had no real other option-I
did try a system restore and that didnt really do anything
thanks anyway
