I get an error when I try to export a profile other than Administrator.

A. This is usually due insufficient privilege on the Protected Storage System Provider\<SID> key. To be able to export your profile perform the following:

  1. Logon as you
  2. Start the registry editor (regedt32.exe)
  3. Select the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER on Local Machine" window
  4. Move to Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider\<SID>
  5. Select Permissions from the Security menu
  6. Click Add
  7. Select Domain Admins (or whatever you want), access type READ and click Add. When finished click OK

You should now be able to export this profile. To be able to export someone else's profile perform the following:

  1. Logon as an Administrator
  2. Start the registry editor (regedt32.exe)
  3. Select the "HKEY_USERS on Local Machine" window
  4. From the registry menu select "Load hive"
  5. Move to the persons profile area in the %systemroot%\Profiles\<name>, e.g. d:\winnt\Profiles\batman
  6. Select the NTUSER.DAT file and click OPEN
  7. When asked for a key name enter their name (e.g. John) and click OK
  8. Now move to <user name>\Software\Microsoft\Protected Storage System Provider\<SID>
  9. Select Permissions from the Security menu
  10. Click Add
  11. Select Domain Admins (or whatever you want), access type READ and click Add. When finished click OK
  12. Select Unload Hive from the registry menu
  13. Close the registry editor

You will now be able to export this users profile.
