Short for User State Migration Tools
, it is a tool that allows a system administrator
to migrate user
configuration setting and files
from systems running Windows 95 or later to a clean Windows XP
installation. USMT is designed for use by system administrators when performing large deployments of Windows XP Professional in a corporate environment. Microsoft recommends that home users and small businesses who need to migrate files and settings without the support of an IT department should use the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard
