USMT rules, problem

Discussion in 'Server Migration' started by Guillermo Lovato, Aug 19, 2005.

  1. i want to use USMT to export user profiles in a migration.

    the problem is that everything is extremely unclear for me.

    the case is i want to copy *:* of the my documents, the default rules only copy documents and certain filetypes.

    the problem is that if i edit the [copý this state] and remove all the extentions for an *.*, i don't know what does it do but the temp starts to grow 4-5 times the original profile size(it usually aborts due to lack of HD space).

    how can i do this?

    thanks in advance

  2. Hi Guillermo,

    Regarding the File Exclude Rules in USMT:If you do not want to migrate some
    files or folders, add a DelFiles label to the [Copy This State] section of
    a Migration Rule INF file to have those files and folders excluded from the
    migration. The DelFiles label is followed by a section name. The section
    contains the files and folders that must not be copied to the destination.
    If ScanState.exe was originally going to copy the specified items, now it
    does not. Note that the file and folder specified in this section are not
    actually deleted from the either the original or destination computer.

    For example:

    [Copy This State]
    DelFiles=Trip Reports DelFiles
    [Trip Reports DelFiles]
    ; We don't want to migrate the July '99 trip report
    %CSIDL_DEKSTOP%\TripRpts\9907*.DOC

    More detailed information, please refer to following article:
