How to transfer user settings to a new profile


My Windows 7 Laptop broke. I then had to buy a new Windows 8 laptop. I paid someone (PC World, UK) to retrieve my data. They did so by backing up the user profiles in the format: 'Users' > 'Default'; 'Myname'; 'Public'; etc. I have tried using Windows Easy Transfer to move these profiles to my new computer, but it doesn't recognise them as profiles. I have tried Transwiz (ForensiT), but I have had the same problem with that.

I'm with Palcouk, based on your description, it sounds like they just saved your files but not the settings. You'll have to set up your settings again.
