    My computer USERS file name has changed names and the files in it have nothing in them.


    Some how today, under C:/Users my computer used to be called 'mrspa', but now it says 'defaultuser0' and almost nothing is in the file folders listed under this new named folder and 'mrspa' is no where to be found.

    How do I get it back to 'mrspa' with all the normal files listed inside it? My computer USERS file name has changed names and the files in it have nothing in them. ecd765f8-5614-4245-8311-1a12cae6154d?upload=true.png

    String to change name in file permissions that include computer name


    I am using clonezilla to restore an image to computers. Some of the imaged file systems use the machine name in their permissions. Is there a string to enter to make the system replace the cloned image machine name to the new (or any current) machine name (i.e. Users (CALLA009871\Users) to Users (CALLA001789\Users)). Hopefully maintaining the permissions of the cloned machine image, just changing the name. I'm thinking something like
    Users (%computer_name%\Users) or is this even possible.

    After thinking about it, I think I might not be asking the right question. I guess what I really need is a string to use that substitutes the current machine name and use it in the cloned (master) image.

    Any suggestions

    netplwiz in the Run dialog box. Click
    OK
    . If prompted for UAC, click Yes.

    2. Now in the User Accounts window, check Users must enter a user name and password to enter this computer, if it is unchecked. In the
    User Name section, select the user name to which you want to change the name and click
    Properties.

    3. In the Properties window, in the User name field, provide the desired user name. Then click
    Apply followed by OK.
