MDT User State Migration Tool (USMT) version 10.0.22000.1 , ADK Version 10.1.22000.1
OriginalFilename: ScanState.exe
FileVersion: 10.0.22000.1

We are using the latest version of ADK for Windows 11 10.1.22000.1

  1. When backing up OS / User profile settings with USMT it no longer migrates custom or standard background images.
  2. Printers in the User Profiles are not being migrated as they did in pervious version.

Please look into this issue.

    Hi, @GaryD

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    After LoadState completes, the new desktop background does not appear on the destination computer. You may check if this helps:

    And according to the official documentation, USMT does not migrate local printers and hardware-related settings.
