USMT Afterburner

With the ©EhlerTech USMTAfterburner technology it is now possible to also migrate settings for Sticky notes and Windows 10 App settings like Edge favourites.

To solve this we built an "afterburner" for USMT. It is basically a small program that run AFTER the migration of the user data. USMT still migrates the data from the source PC but we instruct USMT to restore to an alternate temporary location. The user (or supporter) then simply opens USMT Afterburner upon first login and restores the Modern UI Apps settings after the App has run the first time. USMT Afterburner checks if conditions are right prior to restoring and, if needed, instructs the user on what to do..



Using USMT Afterburner with MDT or SCCM
Simply add the xml files to your USMT package on the MDT/SCCM server, both the X86 and amd64 folder (in CM remember to update DP's)
- On the SCCM TS add the Win10.xml or Win7and8toWin10StickyNotes.xml to to the "Capture User Files.." and "Restore User Files.." steps...
- In MDT just add the Win10.xml or Win7and8toWin10StickyNotes.xml to CustomSettings.ini

To simplify using USMT Afterburner with MDT or SCCM, we use a step in the Task Sequence, before USMT is run (before the
"Capture User Files" step), to copy USMTAfterburner.exe and its Config file ModernAppSettingsBackup.lst to the Source PC at
%public%\documents\UPCentral\USMTab

Basically create a package with the two files without a "program" to run. From the TS run a command line with that package and a plain xcopy:
xcopy *.* %public%\documents\UPCentral\USMTab\*.*

USMTGUI is a valuable tool for the technicians day to day PC handling.

User Profile Central is used in many situations in Domain environments without SCCM or MDT
for user profile backups, moving users from one Domain to another etc.
