USMT - Calculate how much data will be backed up and inform user before process starts?

Recommended Posts

We have configured a "Refresh" OSD deployment, kicked off by users from Software Centre, that uses USMT to backup user data.

Our company policies are quite liberal and back up potentially large amounts of user data, which can take some time.


Does anyone know if there is a script or tool that we might be able to use to inform users, prior to kicking off the OSD Refresh process of just how much data will be captured in terms of file numbers of amount of Gigabytes? It would give users a choice to purge data or back up themselves rather than waiting on SCCM to do it.
