I´m starting an AD users and computers migration and sometimes users tell me that can´t see icons, files, favorities in IE, etc in their desktop.
The problem is that the Quest migration tool sometimes fails making a new user profile and not using the existing one. To solve the problem you need to change a registry key in the conmputer of the afected user.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList and check the user failing profile SID. Open the key ProfileImagePath and erase .profile. Close and reboot the computer.
With this easy change the user will see again his old profile.
Here I put the link to the solution. https://support.quest.com/SolutionDetail.aspx?ID=14050
