    I need to convert a domain based roaming user to a local user. How does one do that when the copy to button is greyed out on the domain user???

    Have you tried just to first edit user profile in active directory and remove path to roaming profile from its properites? Then go to the local box and convert profile from roaming to local. If you need to remove profile path info for multiple users from Active Directory you can try LDIFDE.

    In the end I just formatted the disk, re-installed windows and copied my profile data back over from the server.
