Hello Vincent,

You can use the free version of the Profile Wizard
https://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html. You can download the free
version using the URL https://www.forensit.com/Downloads/Profwiz.msi.

User Profile Wizard is a workstation domain migration tool. It does not
move, copy or delete any data. Instead it configures the existing profile
“in place” so that it can be used by the user’s new account. This makes the
migration process both very fast and very safe. It can migrate from a
domain back to a workgroup and vice versa. You can find the full list of
features here https://www.forensit.com/domain-migration.html.

Forensis also has a free version of Transwiz - a tool for transferring a
user profile to a new machine. Transwiz works by backing up the user
profile to a transfer file that you can then restore on another machine.

I used their tools multiple times and never had any issues. Here's a link
to the list of their free tools https://www.forensit.com/downloads.html.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Best regards,
