SOLVED: Step By Step USMT Script To Migrate as Single User On Windows 10

If you are replacing your Windows 10 hardware or just moving a user from one PC to another you can use User State Migration Tool (USMT).

  1. Download the latest Deployment Kit USMT directly from Microsoft
  2. Install the ADK
  3. Copy the USMT folder to a network share of your choosing.  USMT is extracted by the ADK install into  C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\<#>\Assessment and Deployment Kit\User State Migration Tool
  4. usmt-move-single-userCopy the following into a new file you name USMT-BACKUP.CMD file on the network
    @TITLE USMT BACKUP SPECIFIC USER TO LAN
    @echo off
    @set /p varuser=”Enter the name user you want to BACKUP:  (like imatthews) :” %=%net use z:  <UNC path to your USMT network folder>\usmt
    z:
    scanstate.exe z:\store /ue:*\* /ui:na\%varuser% /O /v:13 /i:MigUser.xml /i:MigApp.xmlnet use z: /delete /Y
    pause
  5. Copy the following into a new file you name USMT-RESTORE.CMD file on the network
    @TITLE USMT RESTORE SPECIFIC USER FROM LAN
    @echo offset /p varuser=”Enter the name user you want to RESTORE:  (like imatthews) :” %=%
    net use z: <UNC path to your USMT network folder>\usmt
    z:loadstate.exe z:\store /v:13 /ue:\ /ui:na\%varuser%net use z: /delete /Y
    pause
  6. Go to your source computer (the one you want to move the users files and settings FROM) and right click on your USMT-BACKUP.CMD file and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.  After you have entered Domain Admin credentials, type the username of the user your want to copy and press the ENTER key.  This will kick off the backup.
  7. When the USMT backup is complete, go to your destination computer and (the one you want to move your users files and settings TO) and right click on your USMT-RESTORE.CMD file and select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.   After you have entered Domain Admin credentials, type the username of the user your want to copy and press the ENTER key.  This will kick off the restore.

At step 6 you should find a large file named USMT.MIG in <UNC path to your USMT network folder>\usmt\store\USMT\ .  You can also extract the files in that compressed .MIG file with the following command:

usmtutils /extract  <UNC path to your USMT network folder>\usmt\store\USMT\usmt.mig C:\ExtractedStore

Note that USMTUTILS is in C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\<#>\Assessment and Deployment Kit\User State Migration Tools
