    Batch file to copy user profile

    XP workstation, want to write a batch file to copy a profile ('pcuser') to the default user profile ('Default User').

    Similar to how you can go to System Properties - Advanced - User Profiles - Copy to but as an automated batch file

    Any help?

    Try saving this in a vbs file:

    Set WshShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
    WshShell.Run "xcopy.exe ""C:\Documents and Settings\%pcuser"" ""C:\Documents and Settings\Default User"" /C /I /S /E /H /R /Y", 1,True
