Man your guides are great they make it look like I know what the heck I am doing here.
I followed this one as close as I could but I must be having a brain fart.
My profiles (documents, favorites, desktop …) are not being restored to the user folders they are being left in the “C:\USMToffline\USMT” folder.
This is all that was in my c:\Windows\System32\CCM\Logs\smsts.log after Windows 7 was installed and the report for the task said success.

I am not supposed to edit the miguser.xml and migapp.xml files. Am I?
The same package is used for “Restore User Files and Settings” step as for the “xcopy x86 USMTbits\X86” steps, right?
And that package has no Program (or Command Line), but only points to the source files?
I did learn (the hard way) you do not want to use “Access content directly from a distribution point when needed by the running task” in the package. That will cause it to try to copy every package folder from the server to the target machine. (I thought it was taking a bit too long)
Well, I am about to remove the tick that says “Continue if some files cannot be restored. To see if that lets me look at a log file to see what is going wrong. I think it may be trying to map the network drives or something like that.
Then reimage my test computer with XP so that I can start all over for the sixth time.
I really do appreciate all your hard work. It really helps a lot of people.
