Migrate Win XP Roaming Profile to Win 7 Folder Redirection

Hi there.
I'm converting several of my users from a Windows XP PC to a Wyse thin client that accesses a Windows 2008 R2 Server via Remote Desktop Services (RDS).  I am using Roaming profiles on the Win XP PCs, but I would like to convert to Folder Redirection so that all data is stored on the server and not copied to the client each time a user logs in. What is the best way to convert a Windows XP PC Roaming profile to a redirected folder on a Windows 2008 R2 server?

Thanks,

J

Thanks for the feedback. I couldn't get the User State Migration Tool to work for this, but I found a way to make it work with the Windows Easy Transfer Tool. There's detailed instructions at this link (post toward the bottom).

Thanks for your help.
