  1. 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 includes them and their associated registry settings Any help would be great
  2. 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 the PSTs are now not connected. So I tried a realitive move comand to try and get it under the users profile in my custom.xml when I run scanstate. Now if the pagefile is on the D: and I add the relative move of the D: it fails saying it cant copy the Pagefile.sys. However I dont want it to and have specifically exclueded it. Any ideas to move the D: to a folder on the C: (doesnt really matter where) and make it work like it was when the D: was there?
  3. 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. This method would cut down on server space that is needed and cut down on time of backing up then restoring separately. If anyone has information on please let me know. Thanks, Darren
  4. I'm working in a medium-sized company with arond 250 PCs. A few months ago, I set up a vbscript that runs Scanstate silently during log on for the purpose of capturing user profile/Windows settings, i.e., Office settings, Windows profile customizations, network drives, printer connections, ODBC connections, etc. While it's working just fine, and has saved us countless hours when rebuilding a user's PC, the .mig files that get created during scanstate are larger than we would like them to be and has caused space issues on our backup server since the file gets backed up (and we want to back up those .migs!). I've already created an XML file that scanstate calls on which excludes a few file extensions such as Office douments, zip archives, PDFs, audio files; however, I believe there are more files that are being captured that we can do without. I've also already excluded external drives from the capture. For our environment, we don't need Scanstate to capture any more than what is required to capture Windows settings, user profile settings, etc. We have backup software that takes care of backing up data. Any help is appreciated.
  5. Hi all I'm migrating a number of computers at remote sites from XP 32 to 7 64. The upgrade will be done by sending around a USB drive which will have a task sequence on it to upgrade them. As we are using SCCM 2007, I'm largely following this guide: http://www.windows-noob.com/forums/index.php?/topic/1735-using-offline-mode-in-windows-pe-using-usmt-4-via-a-task-sequence-in-sccm-2007-sp2/ My problem is that at some of the sites, the 80GB hard drives are split 40GB/40GB between C: and D: and I rather than run the risk of maxing this out mid-process, or leaving the disk near full capacity once reimaged, I'd like to use the "Partition Disk 0" Task Sequence step and get the full 80GB back. Obviously with the c: being formatted, I am unable to store my user state data there, So, my plan is to use the USB with the task sequence on it, with enough free space for the USMT to migrate the data to, as well as a few other files and registry keys. I'm not sure how to do this and my google-fu is failing me here. I'm thinking along the lines of the following... Do inserted flash drives automatically get mounted as D:? (I'd imagine not as you need to set %systemdrive% manually) I understand x: is the WinPE location - If the task sequence is on USB does this mean x: = usb? Can I somehow mount the USB drive using a task sequence? If anyone has any experience with this I'd be rather grateful! Thanks

  7. Hi, We are migrating machines from Windows XP to Windows 7 using USMT 5.0 and hardlink. The only thing I have left to do is to include empty folders. Can anyone provide a bit of info on this? USMT seems to ignore them. I have been searching quite a bit and cannot find an answer. Thanks, 1nternetz

    USMT Scan / Load

    Hello, I have some questions about USMT and config.xml i was hoping someone can help me out. My understanding of using a Config.xml file is that I need one for systems going from XP to Windows 7 and another one for Windows 7 to Windows 7 since the DlManifests are different on the two OS's. So if I run Scanstate.exe on a XP machine, using ConfigXP.xml after upgrading the OS to Windows 7 i have to run the LoadState.exe using the ConfigXP.xml file? And the same goes for Windows 7 reimages. I use ScanState.exe with the ConfigW7.xml and restore using LoadState.exe with the ConfigW7.xml. If the above is true, what is the best way to automate if ScanState.exe was ran from a XP machine, to use the correct Config.XML file once the machine is upgraded to Windows 7? Thank you.
