User State Migration Tool


Microsoft has released the User State Migration Tool. This is available for free download
and will be part of the W2K resource kits in the future. The commandline tool is
designed to make a wipe-and-reinstall conversion from NT to W2K Pro as painless
as possible. It will capture and migrate most of the user’s system settings
including:


  • Dial-up Networking/RAS
  • Display settings (wallpapers, colors, fonts)
  • Internet Explorer 4.x or 5.x settings
  • Accessibility settings
  • Mapped drives
  • Network printers
  • Folder options
  • Migrate Microsoft Outlook 97, Outlook 98, or Outlook 2000 connectivity
    settings.
  • Migrate some common types of user files to the My Documents folder.
It would be just as valuable when moving a user from an PC to an new
PC, NT to W2K or W2K to W2K.
