Not sure if it transfers the actuall acount per se, but it will copy over most of the profile data which stores all account customizations.
Is there any way to move an XP user account from one system to another?
XP is damaged and cannot be open or repaired (tried it, long story). I need to access the user account to move some encrypted files. Although taking ownership of the files does let me access the account, it doesn't let me open the files. Any way in which I can copy the user account to another computer?
