Since Microsoft has decided to implement a true OS migration in Windows 10, I have decided to release my tool for the IT masses. The Windows Migration Utility is a User State Migration Tool (USMT) GUI.
The Windows Migration Utility is built for migrating user and system data to a defined location. Configuration of uses USMT’s methodology of specifying configuration rules in XML files.
Windows Migration Utility is built with C# and uses .NET Framework 2.0. Out of the box should work with 95% of all Windows XP Pro machines. This utility also allows help desk personnel to capture and restore remote machines utilizing Microsoft PSExec. Windows Migration Utility has built in configuration options for running commands before a capture is ran and running commands after a restore has finished. It brings the Configuration Manager’s Task Sequence idea to a graphical user interface.
Windows Migration Utility Supports these scenarios:
Windows 7 / 8 / 10 to Windows 10
If the data is captured by utility it has to be restored by utility. Data is stored in a compressed and encrypted MIG file. Windows Migration Utility also supports restoring user data captured from other programs utilizing custom decryption keys or hard linking.
Project is hosted on GitHub
Hi Tim, I’m a Senior Desktop Support tech and I was reading the description on your Windows Migration Utility. I was not able to download the utility as the link seemed to be broken or moved. Would it be possible for you to provide a new download link or send it by e-mail if its not to big. I would like to use the utility to see If I can migrate users profile where I work.
Thanks in advance

Hi Tim, does WMU support capturing user data from Windows 7 and restoring it to Windows 10 please?
Yes, I have updated the post and link to download.
Do you have an additional link that I can download this utility from?
Hello Ryan, I have updated the link.
Is there anyway to get the password for the encrypted MIG? I have one I need to extract.
I have added the project to GitHub
This program comes up as ransomware, I REALLY am looking to get past CMD line for USMT, but the error worries me.
I have added the source code to GitHub.
