Windows 7 Profiles and data backup / restore?


  • We have a requirement to provide an Executive with a spare machine in case his primary dies or is lost.

    We can take a backup of all data & restore it - easy, stored on a network share.

    We can take a backup of his profile (favourites, application settings registry etc) using Windows Backup - this works. (stored on a network share)

    However how do we restore the profile?

    Do we need the executive to logon onto a spare machine once to create a local profile on to which we would copy his backed up one?

    or is there an alternative to restore a users profile to a new Windows 7 PC

    the new Windows 7 PC will have the default image and all applications installed prior to profile restore ???
