Windows 10: Sharing files between profiles

    Sharing files between profiles

    After a whole day struggling with a damaged profile, I have no choice but to create a new one and miragate all my files and settings over. At the moment I can't access the folders in my old profile I'm getting an error message that says 'you don't currently have permissions to access this folder' I've set it to share in my old profile, tried numerous tutorials online but no joy. Any suggestions?

    If you are very good with folders and files, you can create and boot a Puppy Linux usb [or dvd] and use its file manager to copy from profile old to profile new. Know what you are copying, because not all directories within AppUser can be or should be copied.
