Tool for fixing system shortcuts?

2 posts in this topic

I just did a "quick and dirty" hard drive clone, in other words the machine had a failing hard drive and normal cloning software (HDClone and Clonezilla) couldn't clone it, which only left me with the option of copying the files to an NTFS partition on the new drive. It's booting but unfortunately this method has broken some system shortcuts, such as "All Users" and "Default User" in the C:\Users directory, as well as the ones in user directories (Cookies, Application Data, Local Settings, Start Menu, NetHood, etc.). Is there any sort of utility or Windows function that can automatically repair these?

If there was, you're probably going to have to find out what the original SIDs for those users are, and what they are now.
