7. Awesome off-site backup

Backups: Well know we need them and most of use at least one of the available ways to backup. If we don't, we'd be well served to ponder something Mike Prestwood recently said:

"There are two kinds of people; those that back up - and those that will."

In this article I'd like to show you an off-line backup solution that is so simple to set up and use that you'll never again have an excuse for not backing up important work.

13. Converting from a Workgroup to a Domain

For a particular user on a particular computer, all programs installed for all users will still be available whether they log into their computer or the domain. You will have to migrate all other user specific settings either manually or use an automated tool.

Both of which are incomplete so expect to have to manually migrate some application specific settings and data for each user. At a minimum, log into the old local account and migrate My Documents, Desktop, Favorites, and perhaps e-mail such as the Outlook .PST or Outlook Express .DBX files.
