Can anyone tell me how to exclude folders in USMT 3.01?
Example: C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\My Documents\Adobe
or C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\My Documents\Corel

"C:\Documents and Settings\%userprofile%\My Documents\Adobe"
should read
"%userprofile%\My Documents\Adobe"

Otherwise, the OS reads it as

"C:\Documents and Settings\C:\Documents and Settings\John\My Documents\Adobe"

That is working great for anything in the user profile. How can I add C:\temp?

Why would you want to migrate c:\temp?

I should have been more specific. I wanted to add C:\temp to the exclude list. I found the correct part in the xml to add the excluded folders.
