So I am trying to use USMT to transfer a Domain profile from a Win 7 computer to a Win 10 computer. I have tried to use
USMT>scanstate \\network\mystore /ui:domain:user from the Windows 8.1 ADK on the Win 7, this creates the .mig without error. Then I am using the Windows 10 ADK's loadstate on the new computer
USMT>loadstate \\network\mystore, this seems to have created the user's folders in C:\users apparently without error but has not migrated any of their favorites or desktop.
This is basically a clean profile, I have just put some shortcuts in Favorites and Desktop on the 1 user. It creates about a 33Mb .mig file. I have loads of local junk on my profile's desktop, ie a 40GB folder. When I did a
USMT>scanstate \\network\mystore /auto on my computer the .mig file jumped to 400MB quite quickly.
Title question, plus should I try the
/auto and see what happens? The only reason I didn't go through with it on my computer is right now I am testing this on my bosses computer with my profile. The next time I will have to do this, I will doing it for a 1 user computer so I am thinking about just trying the
PS My backup plan is just to manually pull the files across. This will be happening on a lot of computers but not all at once. I'd just like to get ahead of the game and automate as much as possible.
