There is a way to back up a user account profile so that it can be restored if the original ever gets corrupted. This saves settings, preferences, and loads of other things that would be handy to just restore rather than redo. How is it done in Vista? What would be the process for restoring it if needed? Could I put a copy of my user profile on another machine after creating a new account? Does the OS have to be the same flavor, or can Windows sort it out? Yes, I know I could google and experiement, but one of you has tried this already, I'm sure.
