  3. Howdy, I hope this section of the forum gets enough visibility. My understanding is, that the normal flow if I want to run USMT backup through a task sequence and to restore to a different computer, I would need to pre-emptively define the source and destination. My searches have all returned very limited results and I am hoping there are more options. I'd like to be able to run a backup task sequence, either available or required, grab a random PC, and run a restore task sequence to install the data. I'm not pretending the software would know what the destination would be without te
  4. Hi all, I really hope someone can help as I've spent an unbelievable amount of time trying to get this working with no success. I'm using USMT from the 1607 ADK and I'm trying to relocate a legacy Sticky Note file (.snt) from a windows 7 machine to the new Sticky Note modern app location on a Windows 10 machine. W7 location = %AppData%\Roaming\Sticky Notes\StickyNotes.snt W10 (1607) location = %LocalAppData%\Packages\Microsoft.MicrosoftStickyNotes_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState My USMT script is currently able to sucessfully collect up the snt file from a W7 machine a
  5. Hello Windows Noob family! I am attempting to a very basic, nothing crazy refresh from windows 8.1 to windows 10 using SCCM with MDT. I am doing a user driven installation with the latest ADK installation. I create a standard User Driven task sequence. Under the capture user state step I have Capture all user profiles by using standard options selected, with verbose logging and Copy by using file system access - checked continue if some files cannot be captured and capture locally using hard links. Then under Restore User state I am using Restore all captured user profiles with standard o
  6. Hi, We're looking at a wipe and reload on all of our machines because we're changing our encryption from Checkpoint to BitLocker as we move from Windows 7 to Windows 10. However, I'm wondering if it's possible to use hardlinks for USMT since we do have the Checkpoint filter driver as part of our boot wim. I can't find much about this topic on Google or anywhere else. Our environment is SCCM 1710 and we're moving to Win 10 1703 currently. Checkpoint is 80.64 FDE. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
  7. Hi, I`m buildiong my refresh task sequence to migrate from WIn7 to Win10, my Online USMT transfers the data, however the printer queue, Wallpaper and Outlook signature don`t get transferred, i`m using the default USMT settings. am I missing something? SCCM 1706 + ADK1703
  8. I've found browsing https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/deployment/usmt/usmt-scanstate-syntax That there is a TS variable you can utilize to run command line options OSDMigrateAdditionalCaptureOptions However, I cannot figure out how to utilize the following command to modify my Capture User State Task Sequence The scanstate switch below is what I want to add into my TS so that it captures the installed application registry settings. The goal is to prevent having to manually configure some of the software for each user. /apps scans the image for apps and inc
  9. Hi, I created a USMT Restore task sequence and set to to restore the profiles that connected in the last 14 days. However when it runs it restores all the profiles, here is a Screenshot. Any idea ?
  10. I am experiencing a weird issue. I did a USMT capture of two different machines. Both are in-place (upgrading W7 to W10). One of the systems I was able to do a restore user state, but the other is giving me the following error Error: 0x4005(16389) I've attached the smsts.log Any help would be great
  11. We are migrating from Windows 7 to Windows 10 using USMT with hardlinks. All is well with the migration all documents and files are copied with the exception of IE favorites. Is this because EDGE is the default browser in Windows 10? If so is there a resolution to this issue. Thanks.
  12. Morning All, any ideas on this one would be greatly appreciated. I am deploying our captured image using one task sequence that caters for the Bare metal and Refresh (now Wipe & Load I believe) scenarios, this has worked fined until we perform a Wipe & Load on the Checkpoint Encrypted laptops in the fleet. These laptops have all partitions encrypted leaving no un-encrypted estate on them. You may already see where I am going with this…. The task sequence is being advertised to the user who runs the TS from within Windows enabling the capture of USMT data to the SMP. Once th
  13. I am trying to implement USMT into my task sequence, and it's failing on the capture state stage. My server is running the most recent version of SCCM as well as ADK 10.1.10586.0 It will connect to the state migration point, it creates the 74795756929954750638DAED58C11F01F72E71B19054B42163676F06DB0B31A0 share and then pops up the following error message: The task sequence execution engine failed executing the action (Capture User Files) in the group (Capture Files and Settings) with the error code 2147942436 Action output: ...

  14. Dear all, Since my users also create their own folders and files under their profile f.e. C:\Users\User01\Myfolder, I want the USMT to copy those folders/files as well (I don't know the names of the folders/files). At this moment USMT only copies everything under Desktop, Documents, Downloads,... but not the folders/files at the same folder level. How can I do this? At the same time, I want to exclude f.e. AppData, Saved Games etc. Is this possible? PS. I migrate from Windows 7 to Windows 10.
  15. Hi, I'm trying to make a refresh task sequence with Windows 10. It's working fine when you make a refresh from Computer1 to the same but renamed Conputer2. Unfortunately if i make a refresh keeping the same computername nothing is restored. Thanks for your help
  16. Hello, In prep for a Windows 7 to Windows 10 migration during the upcoming summer I'm attempting to get the USMT up and running. We're running SCCM 2012 R2. I've followed a good bit of the guides available up until this point and I believe my TS is semi-correct. Basically, for my TS I made a new TS through the Wizard and chose to implement the steps suggested through the Wizard for Migration. I then just customized the rest of it. There was some mention of an XML file needing to be created, but from what I took away I didn't need to do this in R2 or if I simply just wanted all pro

    OK, I'm having issues finding information on the User State Migration Tool. Using the tool is simple enough, but I'm looking for a way to import a user account to a DIFFERENT user account. Let's say I have a user account "Owner" and I would like to import the data and settings from "Owner" to the user account "Bob" on a different computer. Is there a way to do this using USMT?
  19. Is there a way I can rename the statestorepath folder and .MIG file to something like the computer name? This is the default path it creates on a capture, this long guid folder and the .Mig file is named USMT.MIG \\StateMigration\SMPSTORED_05ACDFF6$\3B189BD4CC3A4B45A86A5933516F6F13E75A2D5D1AD8B8ED883AEFD5B975BA95\USMT
  20. Hey everyone. I have having some difficulties troubleshooting a USMT restore Task Sequence. I have a computer that is already image and needs a user's data migrated to it. I have already created the computer association and when I view the recovery information, everything looks good. The problem is when I deploy my TS, as soon as the Restore User State starts to initialize, it fails with code 0x8007000B. Below is the Loadstate log. Any help would be greatly appreciated. 2014-12-15 15:55:34, Info [0x000000] LOADSTATE.EXE Version 6.3.9600.17029[gle=0x000000b7] 2014-12-15
  21. We're fine with backing up themes, wallpapers and other display customizations (DPI, window color & appearance etc.) because it gives us something to go back to or restore if its truly need. However, we do not want to restore the aforementioned on the destination PC by default. I must be doing something wrong and I can't figure out what and need some help. I've read some great write ups on the subject: USMT Custom XML the Free and Easy Way USMT 4.0 Custom Sample - Blocking Wallpaper and Theme Migration from Windows Vista and Windows 7 Blocking Wallpaper Migration with USMT (or: you a
  22. Cannot solve this. Windows 7 32bit Currently we have one drive in our computers partitioned in to 2. (C: & D:) New setup One drive one partition. (C: only) Right now users store there data on the D: like documents and PST's. And some machines have the pagefile.sys Right now its easy I tell it to migrate the whole drive and I exclude some folders with an unconditional exlude. Works great. Even doesnt get the pagefile.sys on the D: If I run the loadstate on the machine now with just the one drive it dumps everything that was on the D: to the C:. Very messy plus t
  23. We have been using USMT for many years kicking off a command line script on each the old and new computer. (Scantate & loadstate). In most cases we use MDT just for the build on a hardware refresh. This allows us to prebuild 100's of laptops and have them on hand when someone has time to swap out. My question is could I use USMT to backup the old computer and then restore it to the new one directly? Basically a "computer to computer" data and settings swap. I thought years ago I read that this could be done. But all of the searches I have done recently come up with nothing. Th
  24. Hey all, Is there a super detailed tutorial for USMT someone can point me to? I'm getting ready to experiment with this for the first time using SCCM 2012 R2. Previously I have used the hardlinking method to do in place upgrades from win xp to 7 using a USB and some scripting, but have no clue how to utilize sccm in this regard. My goals are to be able to do in place OS refresh - same hardware, OS refresh from win 7 to win 7 without having to migrate files, settings and install programs again manually - I think I was able to do that previously. It's been a while though. I could be wron
  25. Hi, I have a scenario that I need to figure out a solution to, in the event that it happens in the real world. I have created a few task sequences in SCCM for zero/lite touch imaging using the built in "Capture User State" and "Restore User State" actions. The TS performs the typical set of actions, capture, image, and restore (along with other custom commands). The TS works great in the lab and in a controlled production environment; however, I foresee an issue that I do not know how to resolve. What happens when a technician runs the TS on some workstations and one workstation fails
