Best way to move user profiles over a WAN connection?

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We are migrating to a XenApp/Xendesktop environment with profileunity. The problem we are running into is finding out a best practice method for copying approximately 600GB worth of user profiles over a WAN connection to a different site across the country,. We have attempted using USMT but we seem to have hit a roadblock. We must make a simultaneous transition to the new environment without copying the profile twice- once from the original computer to  a network share and then back to the new profile again. This would take entirely too much time. is there a better method besides just using robocopy?
