User State Migration Tool

Unless you're lucky enough to be running in a fully managed environment with roaming user profiles and all unique user data stored on the network, you need to find a way to migrate the settings and documents from the old systems to the new. The User State Migration tool (USMT) helps with this endeavor. USMT is the IT Administrator's version of the File and Settings Transfer Wizard. USMT can perform all the functions of the File and Settings Transfer Wizard, but USMT is made to run from the command line, in environments where you will be migrating a number of users. In contrast, the File and Settings Transfer Wizard runs with a graphical wizard interface, and is only intended for one-off, user-driven migrations.

→ For a refresher on the File and Settings Transfer Wizard, refer to the section “Migrating Files and Settings with the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard,” p. 80.
