After USMT from XP->Win7, getting tons of duplicate icons

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


On deployment with a client, we've had a strange issue in which USMT will create numerous desktop shortcut icons on a migrated users desktop. Lets say if a PC hasd six user profiles on the machine, after migration the primary user on the workstation will now has seven copies! One for themself and it appears one for each migrated user!


This is a Windows XP to Windows 7 migration using SCCM 2007 Integrated with MDT 2010 (I know, I know, need to upgrade).


Any thoughts?


A note, this is an environment with redirected profiles, including desktop folder, to a user's network drive. It seems like this is somehow related. Especially the correlation between the number of users and the number of copies.
