Complete Vista Migration

Hi,

I'm looking at migrating my current vista user, application setting...
the whole 9 yards, from one Vista machine to another. How can this be
done, easily and efficiently? I have to upgrade 10 Vista machines and I
really dont want to spend a week battling with this.

Thanks in advance

Re: Complete Vista Migration

Hi Shane,

This is really a question with a multitude of answers and depends on how
good your applications are. A good application for example should store all
user settings in the user profile (below C:\Users) and therefore by taking
that folder for the user, you should be able to copy their settings...

If the applications are poorly behaved however and save settings on the
machine instead of in the profile, you will have to figure out where that
data is and ensure it's copied too.

The easiest way of doing this is to use the Settings Transfer Wizard in
Vista -

I hope this helps and let's you know some of the problems you may face...

Regards,
Jon
