Microsoft Releases “W2KMigUser” for Migrating User Files from Windows 2000 to Windows 7

Migrating User Files from Windows 2000 to Windows 7 Using the W2KMigUser Script – The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2010 and the Windows User State Migration Tool (USMT) do not support migration from the Windows 2000 to Windows 7. The W2KMigUser scripts provide a simple solution for migrating users’ files from Windows 2000 to Windows 7.  They are samples that you can use as-is or extend as necessary.
Microsoft designed these scripts to work during the State Restore Phase of a MDT 2010 task sequence.  W2KMigUser backs up users’ group memberships and files from their Windows 2000 profile folders. In Windows 7, W2KMigUser can restore users’ group memberships, re-create their profile folders, and restore their files. Additionally, the script can capture and re-create any local accounts that have profile folders.
Of course, you can control the accounts, groups, profile folders, and files that you want to back up and restore. W2KMigUser can use a network share or removable media as a backup store, but the script does not secure that store.
