how can I view the USMT recovery key


Emergency recovery of User State


you've done a Computer Association between a Destination and Source computer, captured the user state, and now for some reason need to manually restore it. However to do so you need the User State Recovery Key, so how do you find out what that is ?


To do that open Computer Association and right click on the Computer Association you need to get details from.

There is a procedure in case of hard link migration?

I mean if I use a task sequence that:

- capture userstate in hard link mode

- apply operating system without formatting

- restore hard link captured profile

and during apply os the task sequence fails, do you think is possible to recover the user profiles captured?

the files should still be on Hard disk because apply os do not format the disk.

do you think the O.S. could be reinstalled excluding OSDStateStorePath and restore captured profile ?
