I have a backup of the AppData folder for UserA. The account has been messed up during a Windows 10 Update, but the app data is available. Because of this, I've created a new user account, UserB. Can I copy the AppData/Roaming of UserA to UserB and expect it to work?
I recently updated a PC to Windows 10 Home (from Win7). After doing so, I discovered that the account the PC was being used for (UserA) was the 'built-in Administrator' account and thus was unable to modify any settings.
After failing to find a way to convert the account into a normal Administrator account, I decided to create a new user account (UserB) and copy over the files and settings over from UserA.
I've done all the document/downloads/desktop (pretty easy), but i'm unsure if I can do the same with AppData/Roaming . There are alot of program settings which i'd like to transfer over (in particular Adobe related software).
The question: Can I simply copy the roaming folder from UserA to UserB and thus restore all the program settings? If not, what else might I need to do?
Thanks for any help!
