Transfering Settings from Domain Account to Local Account

    I recently upgraded to Windows Vista Business from XP Pro. However, in the
    process I decided to take my SBS2003 unit out of the network equation (it was
    simply too kludgy). In doing this, I thought I had transferred most (if not
    all) of my user settings/files from the domain user account (which was an
    administrator account on the domain) to the local machine account (again, an
    administrator account); unfortunately, I don't think I was successful and
    there are still some thing/files/settings (e.g., IE and firefox profiles and
    settings) missing. I would like to be able to access that domain-based user
    folder from the local administrator machine user account but Vista doesn't
    want to let me access that folder. Is there an easy way to do this other
    than to re-log onto the domain-based user account (not a simple task, if I
    understand it, with the server shut down)?

    Many thanks,
