Windows Migration Utility

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 user defined location.

USMT Local Utility

Have an SCCM 2007 USMT environment with no fail safe on restore.  Well arm your Help Desk with this utility, USMT Local Utility.  It is a huge stress saver.  Stop wasting time on client side troubleshooting get to a point and say enough is enough just do it local.

Use this ‘Stand Alone’ application to capture Windows XP, Windows 7, and Windows 8 and restore it on Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS’s.

This application was written in Visual Basic .NET (VB.Net) utilizing .NET Framework 2.0 so there is no compatibility issues with Windows XP.  This makes the application have no other prerequisites other than the “Source” folder being in the same directory as the executable.
Just type in the location where you want to store the migration file and click on the run button.
 
 
This application will encrypt the created “MIG” file with the key hard-coded in the application.  If you use this application to capture the computer you can only use this application to restore it.
Wait it gets better, did you capture the PC using SCCM but the restore is failing due to who knows what, bad association or just bad client, well you can restore from SCCM USMT captures.  When you hit restore just click specify encryption key and put the path to the State Migration Point path and bamn done.
Click below to start your free download and just remember the “Source” folder MUST be in the same directory as the application.
