Hi,
My user name used to be engineers and i changed it to CODY. I tried installing acronis software and the itt will only install using the old user name and password. Unfortunately my server only recognizes the new user name and acronis cant back up. In user accounts i clicked advanced user properties and it still says (comp name)\engineers instead of (comp name)\CODY. How do i change that? The logon name for the computer shows as Cody and in user accounts it displays as Cody but the computer still thinks the account is engineers.
Thanks

When you rename a user account it does not rename the profile. This is by design.
The problem is that the registry and configuration files will have references to the old profile name. Changing all of these would be a very difficult task. Thus, the profile name is not changed.
