How to set up replication of Windows user profiles

Do you want to set up replication of Windows user profiles?
Before copying user profiles, there must be at least three users on the computer

User 1 (must have administrator privileges)

User 2 (the user whose profile has been copied)

User 3 (Target User)

After copying is completed, log in normally
