How do I migrate Files and Settings for a user from their windows 2000 pc to another windows 2000 pc
Posted on 2005-05-12
I need to replace a users W2k pc with another W2k pc and I need to migrate their environment (desktop icons, ie settings, office macros, file type mappings - all the things that make up their look and feel they are used to) over to the new w2k pc.
I have done a similar migration sucessfully for another user going from W2k to XP using the XP wizard tool called "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" tool. This worked perfectly and copied all files that only MS would know that make up a users environment.
So, I need an equivalent Wizard tool or cmd-line tool that will migrate from w2k to w2k for me.
I toyed with w2k's "briefcase" and "syncronizing" but it is too hard and there are too many hidden/unknown files I would need to migrate. If you look at the XP xfer wizard- there are 100's of files known only to MS.
So I need some equivalent tool, but cannot seem to locate anything. Help!
Any help would be great!
