Hi Experts.

I am attempting to create two custom xml forms to control the migration behaviour of the USMT. The first xml should handle restoring only user context data to a new location such as a network share. The second xml should handle the restoration of system only data to a new location such as C:\Restore\Data.

Is anyone able to advise how I might achieve this?

Cant you use the standard MigApp.xml and MigUser.xml files? Why you need custom xmls?

P.S. Could be good idea to add this to corresponding Windows OS zone. Please advice on which Windows versions you are using the USMT tool.

Thanks for the response. I achieved this by creating custom config.xml files that are called seperately for user and system data.
