What is the best user migration tool?

Rafael V.D. Ville 6 Reputation points

When reinstalling/replacing PC's, we would like to be able to keep the users complete desktop experience somehow.

When a user logs onto a newly deployed PC, they start with spending hours attempting to set up things visually "the way it was before", resetting passwords on homepages they forgot etc..

How can that be done?

    Always use USMT! USMT is the only MS supported tool for user migrations

    We’ve been using USMT for a decade for day to day user migrations,
    and for years used USMTGUI and User Profile Central to run USMT.

    Also I’d say the Ehlertech tools these days are the reference when it comes to user profile migrations as they spend much time keeping USMT updated.
