"Migrates user files and settings."Microsoft Windows User State Migration Tool (USMT) migrates user files and settings during deployments of Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows XP.
Windows User State Migration Tool can provide enterprise migration capabilities such as multi-user profile support, unattended migration and compression. USMT is intended for administrators who are performing automated deployments.
USMT includes two command-line tools named Scanstate and Loadstate. Scanstate captures an intermediate store with the user files and settings from the source computer. Loadstate restores these files and settings to the destination computer.
USMT also has five default migration rule (.inf) files named Migapp.inf, Migsys.inf, Miguser.inf, Sysfiles.inf, and ArchiveApp.inf. You can alter the default .inf files and you can create customized .inf files. Depending on what you want to migrate, you can specify all or none of the default .inf files on the command line.
The entire migration process is driven by the .inf rules, which you can modify, and logic that is built-in to the tool. When using USMT for automated migration, in almost all cases you should modify the .inf files to better handle your unique situation.
