Doing a side by side PC replacement
Backup indicates it ran succesfully. The Restore process fails during request user state store. The certfix has been applied both to source & target PC's.  The specific error message that displays when the task sequence fails is "Task Sequence: Restore Test has failed with the error code (0x00004005).  Here are the RED lines in SMS Trace.

    I guess this is due to you having a D: partition.

    Please read for details

    HTH and let us know the outcome.

    OK I figured it out.  The problem was that the backup portion of the process had two tasks, Request State Store and Capture User State.  I needed to add a third task, Release State Store.  Once I did that and redid backup & restore the entire sequence of tasks worked.

    Thanks for your assistance, though.
